For his first New York solo show the PoPlitically incorrect artist, Saint Hoax, asks the inevitable question… “Is That All There Is?”
Guy Hepner is pleased to present “Is That All There Is”, opening Thursday 15th September in Soho with new works by Saint Hoax on show.
Saint Hoax is a pseudonymous Middle Eastern artist, satirist and sociopolitical activist. An embedded infatuation with pop culture and politics drove Saint Hoax to share his PoPlitically Incorrect vision. Hoax combines tangible and digital mediums, such as a technique called lenticular printing, to create beautiful visual lies that tell an ugly truth. Lenticular printing allows the artwork to change as the image is viewed from different angles.
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. Titled “Is That All There Is”, the collection features his satirical series of re-imagined popular icons.
“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 exhibition is an interactive journey that rewrites history by turning and tyrants into faux queens. ‘Donna Trumpette‘, an unique oil portrait of Donald Trump, comments on the performance aspect of the current political debate. Half dressed in drag, half as the face we know, this work questions if we should really believe what we see?
Other popular icons are on show including the Queen, Kim Kardashian and Marilyn Monroe as Saint Hoax paints them in a satirical light.
Please join us for the opening of “Is That All There Is” on Thursday September 15th at 7pm. Guy Hepner is pleased to present unique works by PoPlitically incorrect artist, Saint Hoax, available for sale. Inquire via phone, email or in person today.
