Israeli illustrator Noma Bar cleverly uses negative space to create some thought provoking illustrations. His artworks are so simple, yet so clever you can’t fail to be impressed.
“An artist using “negative space” relies on the space that surrounds the subject to provide shape and meaning. Of course, the term also refers to any topic that conjures feelings of unease and discomfort,” says the artist in his latest book called ‘Negative Space’.
Born in 1973 in Israel, Noma graduated from Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in 2000. Since 2001, he has been working in London with a lot of big names and media outlets including: Vodafone, Coca Cola, BBC, The Observer, The Economist, Wallpaper and many more. Bar has illustrated over sixty magazine covers, published over 550 illustrations and released two books: ‘Guess Who – The Many Faces of Noma Bar‘, in 2008 and ‘Negative Space‘ in early 2009.
