About the artwork

Colourful and expressive, American artist David Kracov’s beloved art resonates like a wonderful celebration of life. In this work, numerous individually laser-cut butterflies form the shape of a guitar, and the multitude of colours and patterns of the butterflies creates a vibrant visual spectacle for the viewer. To David, butterflies are a symbol of life and its delicate nature, and every butterfly he creates represents an individual life. Thus through this work, David Kracov illustrates how we can come together, regardless of differences in physical appearance or cultural background, to create beautiful music in the world. David’s works are beloved by collectors worldwide, and are included in the collections of several of Hollywood’s elite entertainers, including Steven Spielberg, Matt Damon and Judy Sheindlin.

About 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.
