Passing With Flying Colors (Monumental) is a stunning 3D metal wall sculpture by David Kracov, showcasing his fascination with the interplay of color and form. The artwork, a wave-shaped composition, is made up of numerous metallic butterflies, each galvanized and meticulously painted with acrylics. Kracov's obsession with colors and butterflies is evident in how each element harmoniously aligns, creating an illusion of movement and vitality. The butterflies appear to flutter and dance across the wall, a testament to Kracov's skill in capturing the essence of these delicate creatures through his vibrant use of color. This sculpture is more than a visual feast; it's an exploration of motion and transformation, reflecting the artist's study of color as a powerful tool for bringing static forms to life.
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.
