"Stunning and powerful work of art by street artist gilf! This is Pakistani Malala Yousufzai - the inspiring teenage education activist who was attacked by the Taliban. She's now on the cover of Time's 100 Most Influential People - and this artwork (this HUGE artwork!) beautifully represents her message. Written is: 'Knowledge is the Deadliest Weapon.'" -Beth Murphy, Founder/Director/Producer Principle Pictures principlepictures.com
