I am Saint Hoax, a pseudonymous artist who created a series of oil paintings entitled "MonuMental" that visualize the ephemerality of fame. These artworks are an iconographic study of the sadness lurking beneath the immaculate facades of idols.

These paintings will be showcased on October 10 at Plastik Gallery, a post-internet experiential art gallery, in Beirut.

I think Freddie Mercury did an incredible job of hiding his pain, but he was a homosexual man in an era where they were seen as evil at the least. He lived a grand life but if society was more understanding of non hetero sexualities he probably would have been much happier.

This picture I think is the queen and her father, because in order to become a queen her father had to die. That is the sadness behind the image.

Can someone explain what this means? Is it because they are both queens?

Because the male is the lead singer of the band Queen. And people miss Freddy M.

What? Di didn't "live fast." She was basically murdered by the paparazzi. This one is idiotic.
