Artist Amit Shimoni continues his ‘Hipstory‘ series which consist of painted portraits of famous world leaders styled like today’s youth. Using contemporary and historical world and cultural leaders, Shimoni introduces us to a Barack Obama that rocks a trendy man-bun with the words ‘hope’ and ‘change’ tattooed on his chest; the Dalai Lama sporting a chain necklace with a burgundy hoodie; Hillary Clinton with half-purple hair and more. Through his artwork, he hopes to re-imagine the great leaders of modern history and place them in a different time and culture .
