In the ancient port of old Jaffa, amidst centuries-old streets, lies a studio that’s redefining history, one artwork at a time.
For the last eight years, award-winning digital artist Amit Shimoni has been the founder and singular creative force behind HIPSTORY.
This unique pop-art project leads you down a journey that brings together culture, politics, history, society and art to forge a veritable cultural tour de force.
A one of a kind collection of hand-drawn artworks, it features over 70 iconic figures from the past and present - men and women that built and shaped our world as we know it.
By depicting world-renowned artists, athletes, scientists, social activists and more in never-before-seen avatars, HIPSTORY not only celebrates them, but also educates and inspires future generations - to make their own mark in the sands of time.
The HISTORY collection has been displayed at prestigious galleries across the world, featured in acclaimed magazines, and has been showcased in collaborations with global brands and socio-political campaigns.
And we’re as much about the past as we are about the future - With the explosion of the NFT world, we have ventured into the Metaverse with 'House of Legends' –
a collection of 9,993 NFT works, all of which sold out within 20 hours flat. With every Legend NFT we've provided access to clean water to one family in India and Africa for the rest of their lives. Underway: 80,000. Our goal: 1 million.
Thanks to Shimoni and his incredible team, this collective possesses the vision and the know-how to bring the most ambitious and crazy projects to life. Our latest NFT project is being taken along on a space mission and will be launched from the International Space Mission, a space mission (See ‘Wish Upon a Star’ project) - so yeah, we mean what we say!!
These days, you’ll find us busy working on exciting new online and offline projects - all set to make a splash in the digital and the real world.
