“Book of Love” by David Kracov is a Free Standing Metal Sculpture.
The artwork is made of galvanized metal and painted with acrylics.
According to David Kracov, "The Book of Love" is his expression of love of the written word and an homage to those who are able to transform words into worlds. Each and every "Book of Love" includes different poems from poets that he has admired, as well as his own personal thoughts. This sculpture is also available in a pink version and is hand-signed by the artist.
"I love to read, and from an early age enjoyed poetry. The words of Cummings, Frost, Plath, and Angelou, were like colors being applied to a canvas. Watching an artist paint and seeing the colors applied and transform into what your mind wants to see is the same reaction I get from reading the words of prose and poetry. The words begin to form visions in my mind, transforming from a spoken to a visual experience." - David Kracov

Born in Boston, David Kracov studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and began his career in animation with the Brad Pitt feature, ‘Cool World.’ David went on to work with Disney Animation, Don Bluth Animation, Rich Animation, as well as several other studios, before beginning his solo work as a sculptor and painter. Kracov’s vibrant color palette shows up in his unique steel wall sculptures that begin with hundreds of small sketches. David’s meticulous steel work along with his scrutinizing attention to detail allows his sculptures to take on a life of their own, and his famous butterflies take flight. David’s playful and creative works are each a testament to his steady hand and wonderfully unique artistic ideas. His work brings joy and humor to pop art.
