"Book of Love - Color," a sculpture by David Kracov, stands as a testament to the transformative power of words. Forged from galvanized metal, each curve and corner is meticulously painted with acrylics, echoing the vividness of poetry. Kracov has embedded within this artwork an eclectic mix of poems from admired poets alongside his musings, making every iteration of the "Book of Love" unique. It is not merely a visual delight but a celebration of literary love; from Cummings to Frost, Plath to Angelou, this piece resonates with the symphony of poetic imagination that has long inspired the artist.
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.
