About the artwork

Having worked as an illustrator for Disney for close to 13 years, David Kracov is more than familiar with creating art that elicits happiness and joy. In this piece, a group of hot air balloons ascend into the air in colourful, patterned splendour. One cannot help but feel carefree and liberated, imagining the feeling of rising into the sky for a panoramic view of breath-taking landscapes. Based on the theme of “love is in the air”, the hot air balloons adorn words and symbols that represent the essentiality of love. From using warning signs to warn people to “handle with care” to using comical onomatopoeic words such as ‘pow!’ and ‘boom!’ to express the loud and resonant nature of love, Kracov uses a myriad of different elements to express the temperament of love.

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.
