Artist Isabella Gonzalez’ piece represents the forgotten life of a young refugee. Experiencing more than most do in their entire lives, young, refugee children are often dismissed. Gonzalez captures this in her artwork by purposefully making the boy’s shirt fade, losing its detail, as his story is overlooked. The boy slowly becomes another statistic and number on a page.

Gonzalez plays with different mediums in her piece. She strongly believes art should be about exploring different material. Because of this, she utilizes cardboard, as a canvas, and Prismacolor pencils. Her secret to producing this alluring image is: creating underlying depth and realism by layering shades of pinks, blues, and purples.
