The Portrait of Ivan is about a young boy becoming of age while he is also discovering himself. The Artist has created a new window (a new view) into this book by using over-lapping to create an illusion of a boy, (Ivan) looking through a new page by cutting a square on the next page in the book. The artist uses an X-Acto knife to carefully cut this square out of the page. Also the Artist uses sharpie markers to cover up a huge amount of the pages leaving out a few words that create its own new story. These words creates a whole new meaning of this page. “So that’s what it looks like”.
