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.
