New project against domestic violence by Alexsandro Palombo
Famous Italian artist and illustrator Alexsandro Palombo has gained popularity because of the ironic caricatures of celebrities, which he publishes on his blog Humor Chic. Besides ridiculing selebretis, Alexsandro Palombo in his works addresses important social issues. His series of illustrations are devoted to terrorist attacks in Paris, breast cancer, racism and domestic violence.
Alexsandro Palombo presented another project dedicated to domestic violence. This time, the artist has depicted the celebrities after the beating. As models he chose the photos of famous women who have been edited, causing bruises and scratches. Photos of Madonna, Kristen Stewart, Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Watson with the slogan «Life can be a fairytale, if you break the silence» to call attention to the problem of domestic violence.
The project was released to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.«The most important violence partner is silence. The silence, which every year kills women or makes them disabled forever changing their lives. Domestic violence — a social cancer that knows no boundaries and can affect everyone, without exception, regardless of social status — whether you’re a celebrity or an ordinary person. The antidote to this social cancer can be the voice of the people, open discussion of issues and sharing of its decision», — says Alexander Palombo.
