Hipstory: Artist Amit Shimoni Reimagines World Leaders As Hipsters

Israeli artist Amit Shimoni created the series, depicting global political icons in the most improbable way possible, outfitted and styled in the latest hipster fashions. The illustrator said he hopes to ‘encourage us to reflect upon our leaders, our society, and ourselves’ with his new set of unlikely artworks. The illustrator mixes the modern hipster culture of today’s youth with history’s greatest, most iconic leaders for the Hipstory series. The subjects are seen against solid pastel backgrounds and in place of power suits, expensive haircuts and clean-shaven faces, Shimoni’s world leaders sport piercings, mustaches and edgy, street fashions.
