Artists Draw Illustrations With Symbols Of The 20s, 40s And 60s To Express My Love For Pop-Culture And History

Hi! My name is Akber Ahmed and I’m an illustrator who currently lives in Berlin. Ever since I can remember I’ve always loved drawing something or the other. From the doodles, I made as a kid to the comics I drew as a teenager and movie posters I illustrated as a young adult.

When I look back I realize that there has always been one constant thread: my love for pop culture. From movies and music to historical world events, I have always been obsessed. In fact, growing up, my favorite book was ‘The Guinness Book of the 20th Century’.

A few months ago, I decided to combine my love for pop culture and history with my love for illustrations in a series I’ve titled ‘Decadent Decades’.  It started with ‘The Roaring Twenties’, then ‘The Fighting Forties’ and most recent ‘The Swinging Sixties’. So without further ado, let’s take a trip back in time!
