"Self-Portrait" by Alishba Bilal.
Aged 16 from Surrey, BC
I’ve painted this portrait of myself and the pieces are scrambled. This painting shows the reality of people; they all look happy from the outside, but the pieces can be jumbled up inside and many of us are uncomfortable sharing the jumbled pieces with our friends and families. This painting also shows that perfection does not exist, but beauty does exist in everything and everyone, no matter how jumbled up the pieces are.
