Talented artist re imagines today’s leaders as hipsters.
We’ve never featured Israeli designer Amit Shimoni in any of our previous cool articles, but we can’t argue that he’s a seriously talented artist. Now that this unpredictable election campaign in the U.S. is getting a little crazier with each passing day, it may be that time to ask: What if politicians and world’s renowned leaders would just get a little bit chiller?
That’s basically what Shimoni is up to with his uproarious Hipstory collection. He has re-imagined various world leaders in a way that only hipsters and the ‘Y’ generation can relate to. Given how modern-day hipsters are self-centered and constantly use trendy fashion and styles as a way of expressing themselves, you could possibly imagine Barrack Obama with geeky dreadlocks and tattoos and Donald Trump with a faux-hawk and gold chains.
It doesn’t stop there; Shimoni re imagines a host of other great leaders of modern history in a way that conforms to the modern-day hipster-driven culture. So, sit back and scroll through a world of hipster leaders.
