Frieder has been working with refugees at the Kutupalong Camp in Bangladesh, inhabited mostly by Rohingya Muslims that have fled from persecution in neighboring Myanmar, that created the 5-foot by 25-foot mural.
The school walls are covered with mural created by public art organization called Artolution, who collaborate with refugees to create large pieces of art and use art as therapy in conflict zones around the world.
