Hipster World Leaders by Amit Shimoni

Israeli illustrator Amit Shimoni re-imagines some of modern history’s great world leaders with a twist. The Hipster World Leaders series entitled “Hipstory” by Amit Shimoni shows leaders like JFK, Che Guevara, Churchill and Lenin dressed in indie bro fashions. Churchill ditches the cigar and suit for sailor-inspired duds, JFK rocks the pencil ‘stache and swirl-over haircut, Lenin goes neo-punk stud style. Shimoni’s series is playful and hilarious, making some of history’s most important people a little more down-to-Earth. You can almost hear them proclaiming that world leadership is “so last century”.

The Hipster World Leaders series by Amit Shimoni is available for purchase in many printed styles. Art prints, framed prints, canvases and others feature the Hipstory images as well as other great works by Shimoni. This series is available from $17 on Shimoni’s page on Society6.
