Saint No

Riders On The Storm

Riders On The Storm, the title of which is borrowed from a song by The Doors, is a collection of mixed media works on canvas and paper created in the spring and summer of 2022. While the original lyrics of the song tell the story of a killer, Saint uses them as a metaphor for life, resilience during hard times, and all those who would choose to control others rather than promote personal autonomy. Created amidst the constant state of change, stress, and tumult that this past year has brought, this new body of work employs a variety of visual motifs. Imagery of strong women, horses, cowboys, desert views, and other common American tropes bring focus to exploration, determination, hope, strength, and the pursuit of new horizons.

SAINT NO (b.1980 La Mesa, CA) is a contemporary American artist. He mixes traditional American imagery, archetypes, clichés, and modern mythology, to examine the self and The West through a contemporary lens. To date, Saint primarily has made his mark on paper and canvas, though he has been known to explore fabrics and found objects. Recent exhibitions include “SHINE” and “SLOW BURN” at Mojave Flea, Palm Springs, CA., and “She Wished She Had Texas On Her Side” at Neighborhood, Dallas, TX. Saint currently lives and works in Tucson, AZ
