Presumably a Disney-lover, Henry Barnes' girlfriend could not say no to a Beauty and the Beast-infused proposal -- especially when it involved a 50-foot-long mural. Henry Barnes, a graffiti artist and modern-day Romeo, created his best graffiti mural ever to aid in the process of proposing to his girlfriend.

The couple met three years prior in front of the wall that he chose to paint the proposing masterpiece on. His past works infused pop culture cartoon characters, but this one is the largest mural he has ever created. It depicts Beauty dancing with the Beast beside large graffiti letters that state "Will You Marry Me."

While street artists are usually stereotyped as being rough and tough, Barnes certainly proved people otherwise.
