HIPSTORY: THE WORLD’S GREATEST LEADERS REIMAGINED AS HIPSTERS

As a part of designer Amit Shimoni‘s ongoing “Hipstory” series, the artist has now reimagined various world leaders as hipsters. "I often find myself thinking about the differences between these world’s greatest leaders, their beliefs and motivations, and our self-centered generation’ shimoni describes. ‘the ‘Y’ generation is constantly looking at fashion and style as their way of self expression while steering away from the big ideologies. ‘Hipstory’ wishes to reimagine the great leaders of modern history and place them in a different time and culture  —  ours", says Shimoni.
