Inspiration and hope to art industry
17 March 2017 | by hibajaroudiSee all my reviews

I have been waiting for something like this for so long!!!

This is absolutely a great documentary, great content and great people. I watched episodes multiple times while working on my art as I felt that they are talking my language and sharing my thoughts.

I want to thank the whole team for this documentary and all the artists for sharing info with full transparency with the world. You made me love my work even more!

Thank you " Abstract " team. Design is for everyone. CAN'T WAIT for the new season!
