A short film about artist Amber Ibarreche.
Amber Ibarreche has been called “The Oprah of Instagram”. She’s from Brooklyn. She drops mad motivationals on the ig. She has some incredible art and designs like this custom t shown above (talk about “1 of 1″) and she’s a damn fine artist.
The video up top shows you a little bit of who she is. I happen to become aware of her because someone was writing about her ig posts. I wanted to find out more of who she was and what she was all about.
Then, as I watched the video, there were some uniquely soccer props in the video. A football deconstructed and customized. A couple of cards.
