"Go With the Flow - Vertical" is David Kracov's sculptural celebration of the ocean's majesty and the personal tales that emerge from its depths. Crafted with galvanized metallic fishes, each painted with acrylics to embody the ocean's myriad colors, the sculpture ascends in a vertical wave, suggesting the dynamic movement of marine life. The layering technique employed by Kracov creates a sense of three-dimensional depth, akin to the stratified layers of the sea, where creatures great and small move in concert with the undulating currents. This work is steeped in the personal journey of a friend's transformation from assistant to marine biologist, reflecting the transformative power of the ocean—not only on the life within it but also on the lives of those who study its mysteries. It is a testament to the beauty and complexity of marine ecosystems and the bonds of friendship that can be as deep and enduring as the sea.
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.
