Israeli illustrator Amit Shimoni has created a cheeky series that imagines some of the world’s most famous prominent leaders and cultural icons as modern-day hipsters.
In his ‘HIPSTORY’ project, Shimoni gave leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi and Che Guevara a hipster makeover by featuring them with spiffy hairstyles and stylish clothes and accessories, placing them almost seamlessly in the cool crowd of today.
Through his satirical illustrations, Shimoni hopes to move people to reflect upon these leaders who have inspired us, albeit in a new way.
