Gilf! is an up and coming street artist working and living in Brooklyn. 

When it comes to her personality, she is hardly what one would describe as a savage street artist. With a soft-spoken demeanor and chill vibe, it is hard to imagine the Brooklyn resident donning a hoodie and throwing up pieces in alleys, but her artistry says otherwise. Dedicated to the representation of females in the world of street art, Gilf’s pieces embody a lighthearted touch while conquering heavy issues and focused on creating positive change through her work.
Great short interview, in the video below, in which tells about her work and inspirations:

The brunette's artistry is motivated by the idea of inspiring people without ever meeting them and creating unexpected beauty from controversy. Breathing hope into many of these issues, her goal is to create art that provokes thoughtfulness and motivates a change of the zeitgeist. A portion of each sale is donated to a charity specific to that image, when applicable, which allows the collector to take an active approach to the world around us.
My personal favorite: The Big Swim
