Saint Hoax is a pseudonymous Syrian 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 to create beautiful visual lies that tell an ugly truth.
Always donning a mask, Saint Hoax has kept his identity concealed for safety purposes as he openly critiques social and political norms and leaders. Masking is also an intention to separate himself from the work, letting the work speak for itself and removing the creator from the equation.
His work portrays the politics of pop culture through a visual narrative, rooted in a deep unique understanding of culture, politics and satire. Saint Hoax merges these concepts to create the newspaper of today, offering instant criticism of current events and seeking to peel back the sheen of the sham.
Syrian refugees dressed up as their favorite Disney princesses to raise awareness about young girls living in refugee camps. Due to war and displacement, the education of most refugee girls is disrupted. This often leads to sexual and gender-based violence, increased risks of exploitation, and early marriage/pregnancy. It’s highly important to educate and empower girls in refugee camps.
