Psychedelic Portraits of History's Greatest Scientists


From Galileo’s bushy beard to Newton’s flowing curls, there have been more epic hairstyles in science than you might think. Nowhere is that fact clearer than in Melbourne graphic designer Simon Bent‘s Science vs. Delirium, a series of portraits that renders history’s greatest scientists in the kinds of psychedelic colors and patterns you might have seen ’60s acid-rock posters. Intending to restore these figures as pop-culture icons, Bent has certainly succeeded in making his subjects look cooler than ever.
