This Creative Artist Re-Imaged 18 World Leaders As Hipsters


Did you ever imagine how all the famous leaders would look if they were hipsters?! Okay, we know it’s a strange question, but we must admit, we’re a little curious to see. Can you imagine Che wearing Adidas?! Or John F. Kennedy with a modern hipster haircut?! Well, 28-year-old Israeli illustrator Amit Shimoni did. He came up with the awesome idea to create an interesting series called “Hipstory”, which re-images some of the world’s greatest leaders (including some important Israeli Prime Ministers) as hipsters. Shimoni says his work is an “attempt to create new and altered portraits of some of the most famous politicians in history”. If you’re eager to find out more, check out our selection of the 18 very best Shimoni masterpieces.
