You may or may not have imaged some of the world’s greatest leaders — and Donald Trump — as hipsters, but you’ve never imagined them quite like this.
The artist behind the illustrations, Amit Shimoni calls it a HIPSTORY. Basically, he reimagined and illustrated the world’s greatest leaders as modern-day hipsters.
His main motivation behind the idea was to place and reimagine these leaders in a different time and culture – the culture of generation ‘Y’.
“I often find myself thinking about the differences between these world’s greatest leaders, their beliefs and motivations, and our self-centered generation,” he reportedly said on Bored Panda.
“HIPSTORY wishes not to criticize, but to shed new light on the way we think of ourselves and the figures who inspire us.”
The illustrations took Amit a few months, but he believes the effort was worth it.”It is my hope that this series will encourage us to reflect: upon our leaders, our society, and ourselves.”
Take a look:
Although Amit said Trump isn’t the classic HIPSTORY figure, he just couldn’t help himself.
