About the artwork

With his trademark symbols of butterflies, Kracov delves once more into word play to bring significance to what may just be a visual piece. 'Passing with Flying Colors' is a term most often associated with students and exams', and signifying children with his butterflies, the artist turns the phrase around, showing instead the free flight of the children as they pass by, resplendent in color and levity. This brings into focus both a social commentary of the pressures on children today while also celebrating them in their natural form- colorful, full of life, and with wings of freedom and imagination.

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.
