"Gift of Life" by David Kracov is a sculpture that captures the joyous essence of emergence and new beginnings. The sculpture features an open gift box, meticulously crafted from galvanized metal, with the top flung aside to allow a swarm of colorful butterflies to ascend into the air. The butterflies, painted with a vibrant array of acrylics, seem to burst forth with life, symbolizing the release of beauty, transformation, and the boundless potential contained within moments of change. This open box is a metaphor for life's infinite possibilities, a reminder that the most extraordinary gifts are not those that are wrapped and contained, but those that are set free to soar.
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.
