PRESS NEWS - METRO UK "aleXsandro Palombo depicts cartoon characters as victims of domestic violence"

With split lips, black eyes and bloodied noses, these striking images show iconic cartoon characters as you’ve never seen them before.
The powerful project is the work of artist aleXsandro Palombo, who created the images to mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, which takes place on the 25th November.
On his wesbsite Palombo explains: ‘Thousands of women are killed every year all over the world. Femicide is an unacceptable social issue. As a man, I feel ashamed of the behaviors of those who use violence against women. These beings are not men but cowards. It’s up to real men to persecute and fight these cowards.’
Check out the thought-provoking images below.
