PoPlitically Incorrect by Saint Hoax

PoPlitically Incorrect by Saint Hoax

Titled “PoPlitically Incorrect”, the collection features his satirical series of re-imagined popular icons. The world’s most recognized figures such as Vladimir Putin, Hitler, and Kim Jong Un become almost unrecognizable once merged with Hoax’s vision. “The project is a mere reflection of the current political situation that has taken its toll not only on the Arab region, but also on the entire world.” Hoax explains. “I want my artwork to become a constant reminder that the idolized leaders are merely performers in drag — My art is purely ‘POPlitical’ rather than political.” The show is an interactive journey that rewrites history by turning gunpowder into glitter, and tyrants into faux queens.

Artworks such as “Expired Meat”, encase these political leaders as though they are a piece of meat found at a grocery store.  Saint Hoax says of his work, “The ethics of eating meat are very similar to those of politics. People carefully choose their meat in accordance to their religious values; the way they would choose a leader. If religion doesn’t apply, social morals govern that decision. Both topics continue to stir controversy and debates, dividing people into supporters, opposers and those that lie in between. Supporters argue that both practices are vital for human existence, while opposers preach that they can easily be substituted. ”

Saint Hoax has a talent for smashing the worlds of pop cultural and politics into each other in a way that makes hearts and minds explode. In previous series, he has re-imagined the notorious kiss between Madonna and Britney Spears at the 2003 Video Music Awards — and Snow White, Ariel, and Princess Jasmine as bi-curious exhibitionists.

About the Artist

Saint Hoax, an anonymous Middle Eastern artist, satirist, and sociopolitical activist, is infatuated with popular culture and politics drove. It is this infatuation that drove him to embark on his PoPlitical journey, a series of images that combine tangible and digital mediums to create beautiful visual lies that tell an ugly truth. He most recently debuted Summer 2015 with his first solo show in Bangkok at The Adler Subhashok Gallery.
