PASSPORT: 156 page hardcover book documenting the artworks and travels of Tavar Zawacki in over 50 countries from 2004 to 2010.
Artist Shepard Fairey wrote the introduction for Passport saying,
"I first encountered Above's art on the streets of Paris in early 2003. His large scale trademark arrows were painted on roll down gates, trucks and storefronts with impressive coverage throughout the city. Above is extraordinarily driven. To paraphrase Radiohead, "ambition can make you look pretty ugly," but in Above’s case, his ambition makes the streets look very engaging. I am very impressed by Above’s diligence, but after I got to know him and his artwork more, I began to realize that his output is not evidence of selfish ego, but of a lust for life, a utopian life, where his generosity, and curiosity, and his pursuit of creativity and social-consciousness have led him around the world making more friends than enemies.
Above made the time to act as tour guide for me and my wife and our two young daughters in a city he knows well and we didn’t. The gesture made me greatly value Above’s friendship and reinforced my belief that what you give is what you get. The Karma Police are not coming for Above even if the police vandal squad is."
