Noma Bar’s innovative, playful style has made him one of the most sought-after illustrators working today, with a broad range of commissions from magazines and newspapers – including Empire, the New York Times, Wired, the Guardian and Time Out – and numerous private and advertising clients. His use of negative space and minimalist forms creates images with multiple readings that delight and surprise in equal measure. Each of Bar’s illustrations tells a story that is hidden in the details, with the message revealing itself in the double-take as you look more closely.
Noma Bar has handpicked his most iconic illustrations and favourite works, each one displaying the distinctive style that has established his reputation. Each book focuses on topics he has explored in his inimitable style: ‘Less More’ (daily life), ‘Pretty Ugly’ (portraits), ‘In Out’ (sex), ‘Life Death’ (conflict) and ‘Rough Smooth’ (personal sketches).
