Bitter wit

Noma Bar’s work is simple yet striking. His witty illustrations use the negative space of one image to form another, creating interlocking jigsaws of graphic forms.

For his show Bitter Sweet at KK Outlet in London next month, the Israeli born artist will exhibit two very different aspects of his illustrations – the political commentary that runs through his work and its playful execution.

From touching hands that encase a mushroom cloud to a gun-toting policeman constructed from watching faces, each images cleverly forces the reader to look twice.

Bar’s work has previous accompanied articles from the likes of Time Out London, The Guardian and The Economist. Bar also created the celebrated Esquire Spock cover that featured the Star Trek character’s wink constructed from his Vulcan salute.

Bitter Sweet runs from 1 – 30 April at KK Outlet , 42 Hoxton Square, London N1.
