About the Artwork:
“The artwork was created for a magnificent play written by polish playwright Tadeusz Szlobodzianek called ‘Our Class’. While I highly recommend for everyone to read the play this is the image for me that represents the story and our world the most. My goal was to create something truly passionate and communicative.” – Mate Jako
