Artist aleXsandro Palombo used impressive Photoshop skills to give stars like Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner bruises all over their faces as a way to fight back against domestic violence.
The images are shocking and the message is clear: Anyone can be a victim of physical abuse…even the most beautiful celebrities.
Kim, Kendall, Miley Cyrus, Emma Watson, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristen Stewart are all featured in the campaign, with each of their battered faces plastered on posters with the same message: “Life can be a fairytale if you break the silence. No woman is immune from domestic abuse. #Stopviolenceagainstwomen.”
“The biggest accomplice of violence in the silence,” the artist and activist explained. “A silence which every year kills or causes disability more than diseases or accidents. Domestic violence is a cancer that knows no boundaries nor social status, it can affect anyone, whether you’re an ordinary person or a celebrity. To defeat him you need to use the antidote of culture by educating and raising awareness on Respect and Equality. Each of us has to do their part to help increase awareness and to change things by any means.”
