Extreme and controversial 

Saint Hoax’s works of art are references to news and pop culture events edited in an extreme and controversial manner, which makes it a unique phenomenon of the digital world.

In the interview with Plastik, he says, “It used to be more difficult for art lovers to discover artists on their own. Gallery owners controlled the art scene by highlighting whomever they deemed worthy. Most galleries didn’t take digital art seriously; therefore, it wasn’t displayed for the public. And how can the public demand something that they have little knowledge about?”

His tagline is “poplitically incorrect”

“I wouldn’t call it a necessary evil,” he says about political correctness. “It’s more of a necessity to achieve coexistence. Just because I’m not offended by a certain subject, that doesn’t give me the right to treat it lightly if it offends someone else.

However, when it comes to satire and art, political correctness becomes censorship and that is something that I’m completely against.

Thoughts on Trump administration

It’s obvious that Saint Hoax’s works are full of criticism of Trump’s actions, for instance, his attitude towards Muslim refugees, “However, the way the Trump administration specified that said danger could only come from these seven countries is discriminatory. Especially since 90% of the citizens from these countries are Muslim. The way that they announced the ban was extremely racist and unorganized.”
