Artist Turns Disney Princesses Into Badass 1940’s Noir Characters


Artist Astor Alexander‘s latest series looks at changing our perceptions of Disney princesses.  No more stereotypically submissive women, Astor turns Disney princesses into badass noir characters. It’s a “stylish” crime genre, emphasizing cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Noir fiction protagonists are usually self-destructive, dealing with a corrupt legal, political or other systems. Their stories often lead to lose-lose situations, too.

Astor has perfectly captured the aesthetic and atmosphere of the genre while preserving the distinct personalities of the princesses.
