Saint Hoax, a 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.
At the end of this month he debuts his first solo show in Bangkok at The Adler Subhashok Gallery. Titled “PoPlitically Incorrect”, it features his satirical series of reimagined popular icons. The world’s most recognized figures become almost unrecognizable once merged with Hoax’s vision. The show is an interactive journey that rewrites history by turning gunpowder into glitter, and tyrants into faux queens.
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 reimagined 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.
“Saint Hoax: PoPlitically Incorrect” will be on view from April 30 to June 12 at The Adler Subhashok Gallery Bangkok, 160/3 Sukhumvit 39. Open Mon-Sat from 10am- 5pm. Contact 02662 0299 for more information.
