This artist draws famous historical figures as modern-day millennials — and the portraits are hilariously accurate

INSIDER Logo By Melina Glusac of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 22:  Tel-Aviv-based illustrator, content creator, and character designer Amit Shimoni has two passions: history and hipsters. Since 2014, he's been working on a series of illustrations called "HIPSTORY" - a reimagining of iconic historical figures as modern-day hipsters. And with almost 20,000 Instagram followers, he's quickly gaining a large following for his work. Everyone from Abraham Lincoln to Hillary Clinton is fair game for a Shimoni-drawn transformation: JFK gets a hipster haircut, Queen Elizabeth dons a flower crown, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel rocks black lipstick.  Keep scrolling to see some of Shimoni's coolest "hipstorical" portraits.
