The Hipstory series by Amit Shimoni 9

The Hipstory Series is  not only the latest work by young artist and illustrator Amit Shimoni, but also the exact place where hipster culture meets history.

Che Guevara, Vladimir Lenin, John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Mao Zetung, Mahatma Ghandi: they got all transformed into hipsters by Tel Aviv-based artist Amit Shimoni.

The graduate project out of the Visual Communications Department at the Bezalel Academy, presents a series of portraits of World Leaders transformed into hipsters – a project that started when Amit got an assignment that urged him to compare between past and present leaders’ vision.
