Controversial artist uses Disney princesses to encourage young victims of incest to come forward

An artist has portrayed three Disney princesses being kissed by their fathers as part of a campaign to inspire victims of incest to come forward.

The Middle Eastern artist, who uses the pseudonym Saint Hoax, started the ‘Princest diaries’ campaign after learning of the abuse experienced by a close friend.

He said: ‘I recently learned that one of my closest friends was molested by her father when she was seven.

‘It took her 14 years to be able to share that traumatising experience, and that story shocked me to my core.’

Saint Hoax operates under an assumed name to protect himself from unwelcome personal attacks due the sometimes controversial nature of his work.
