Samuel Masters for Art-Sheep
In a previous post, Art-Sheep had featured designer Amit Shimoni and his highly entertaining illustrations of world leaders re-imagined as modern day hipsters. In his series “Hipstory”, the young artist has designed trendy-looking portraits of such individuals as Ghandi, Che Guevara, J. F. Kennedy and Nelson Mandela, in an assortment of unlikely, yet characteristic getups including tropical-patterned jackets, psychedelic tees, ear gauges and studded vests.
In his new batch of creations, the collection is expanded with the equally awesome additions of President Obama, depicted with dreads, tattoos and a pierced ear, Hilary Clinton sporting a punky purple ombré, not to mention Queen Elizabeth with a flower wreath in her hair, among others. Upbeat and funky, Shimoni’s iconic illustrations will definitely have you asking for more.
