MonuMental, Saint Hoax’s provocative paintings
Saint Hoax loves to provoke and he knows how to do it very well. His paintings want to destabilize the public and make people reflect through satire.
Saint Hoax is an artist and activist who likes to provoke through satirical-sociopolitical paintings.
Entering his website comes out the words “Politically incorrect” and it is also for this reason that Hoax has hidden his identity, because of the strong content that he offers about society, religion and politics. The “MonuMental” series tells how ephemeral fame is, revealing what lies behind it and highlighting all the falsity of the media and the contradictions of the world of appearances.
Characters like Marilyn, Frida and Queen Elizabeth are presented with images that destabilize the common opinion, where surrealism becomes a means to be able to do satire. Out of series, there is also the provocative photo of Trump, which turns into a drag queen (sorry queens, we love you).
The paintings will be on display from October 10 at the Plastik Gallery, a post-internet experiential art gallery in Beirut.
