Is That All There Is

about Saint Hoax

Saint Hoax is a Syrian satirist and socio-political activist, infatuated by the element of pop. He uses various mediums, including oil painting, lenticular printing and digital printing, to subversively depict political and popular figures. The result is a sort of POPlitically incorrect statements. He’s also known for taking Disney characters out of context and using them for social awareness, as in the case of his poster series, Happy Never After, whose aim is to encourage victims to report their cases in order for the authorities to prevent it from happening again.

Saint Hoax is just a pseudonymous by which the artist manipulates images and icons, creating beautiful visual lies that tell an ugly truth. Is That All There Is is one of his last solo exhibitions held at the Guy Hepner, in New York.
