An artist named Saint Hoax created a series of artwork featuring battered Disney characters.
He says it's an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence, to encourage victims to come forward and also to prevent abuse.
"I soon realized that the problem isn't that people have double standards when it comes to domestic abuse but actually due to the lack of awareness around that subject. We continuously see campaigns about abused women but rarely encounter any campaign that targets male victims of domestic violence. I only knew these statistics about abused men last month after doing an intensive research around the subject. The information wasn't out there, I had to dig for it. For that, I felt like the "Prince Charmless" series were highly needed to push people to research more about that topic."
