Politically Incorrect: This Artist Manipulates Popular Culture References To Satirize Contemporary Society And Politics
Saint Hoax (previously) is a pseudonymous Syrian artist, activist and sociopolitical critique who manipulates popular culture references to satirize contemporary society and politics.
He describes his work as being ‘POPlitically incorrect’ as he does not shy away from exposing the grim underbelly of contemporary politics through humorous references to popular culture. His anonymity enables him to be openly provocative and ensures that the attention remains on the art rather than on the artist.
Hoax was not only shattering Western notions that we idealize, but discriminatory Lebanese ideas that we should slowly let go of.
