Illustrated Illusions by Noma Bar.
The recent additions to the portfolio of Israeli-born and London-based graphic designer Noma Bar are a compilation of simplistic images containing images of dual interpretation executed in a manner typical to his style. the readable illustrations contain illusions through bar’s use of negative space. each drawing is formed by a background of one consistent color then cut away from by alternate colors, spelling out a hidden political, societal message from the designer.
Describing his craft as visual communication, combining the skills of artist, illustrator and designer, Noma states he’s “after the maximum communication with minimum elements”. His two stunning and highly acclaimed books, The Many Faces of Noma Bar and Negative Space have become a must have for the design industry. He has exhibited worldwide, including solo shows in London, New York and Paris.
Noma’s work has become well known throughout the advertising world, winning various industry awards. more recently the prestigious Yellow Pencil award at the D&AD Professional Awards 2012 for his series of Don DeLilo covers,created with London design studio It’s Nice That.
