Hipstory by Amit Shimoni






 

What Your Favorite Political Leaders Would Look Like As Hipsters?
I love the fashionable vibrant portraits "Hipstory" fom artist Amit Shimoni showing Barack Obama sports a dreadlocked topknot while Hillary Clinton opts for a candy-colored ombré cut and Ronald Reagan sports a flashy diamond stud. "It is my hope that this series will encourage us to reflect: upon our leaders, our society, and ourselves," the artist adds. "And failing that, HIPSTORY will at least make us smile."

Sara Andreasson

 

Love the Bacherlor's Project "White Noise" about critical (fashion) illustrations from Swedish illustrator Sara Andreasson. Sara’s work, with her bright palettes and bold characters, has strong feminist undertones and a sense of societal commentary that is always handled with a playful touch. She is also editing an art zine called BBY magazine– a publication focused on prominent female creatives within the art and design world.  

"Fashion can, with its implicit flux, be described as an ever-changing mirror of the times, a reflection of prevailing dreams and utopias as well as an expression of limitations and shortcomings. By considering fashion a continuous documentation of the Zeitgeist, we can apprehend the norms and ideals that manifests themselves way beyond the glossy spreads of a fashion magazine.
 

White Noise is a norm-critical project resulting in a series of fashion illustrations, through conformity and resistance aiming to expose the hierachies that quietly shape the grid against which we are inevitably measured". – Sara Andreasson -

This project is exhibited until 27.09 at New Nordic Fashion Illustration vol.2, Tallinn, Estonia
