These Fab Ciraolo paintings show that hipsters have been around for much longer than many think. Even in the 1950s, people were wearing Vampire Weekend shirts, which were made famous by none other than Salvador Dali.
As Fab Ciraolo's portraits demonstrate, while the Dalai Lama usually lives a life of promoting health and love to the world, on the weekends he tries to pick up ladies with an old school boombox and such lines as "Quiver ladies, quiver." Most history books fail to point out that Cleopatra went through a hipster phase when she would wear ridiculous horse jewelry and receive tattoos of a cross that says "Justice" on her breast.
The artwork of Fab Ciraolo provides an interesting interpretation of history. These original hipsters were the first of their kind.
