Noma Bar: Negative Space Design

by Denis on September 16, 2011

Noma Bar is a master of negative space design. His Cut It Out exhibition opens today at the Outline Editions gallery in London and he will offer Create Your Own Cut-Out workshops at the gallery. In a recent interview with The Independent, Bar, who has done illustration work for newspapers and magazines around the world, said:

“I move along a fine line between design, illustration and art, which is a very interesting area, and I don’t like to be pigeonholed in any of them,” he says. “I love to do illustration, and I love the buzz of journalism, working with tight deadlines, and I love to work in the space of a gallery. From 18 to 21 I was a navigator in the Navy. [It’s influence] is definitely there – I’m still dealing with these issues. I don’t think a normal illustrator who hasn’t been in the places I have been can handle political issues in the same way; I can understand exactly what journalists talk about.”

Creative Review magazine also wrote about the exhibition and they also offer several photos. Two of my favorite works being shown at the exhibition are the following:

Bar’s screen prints and cut outs are available at Outline Editions in the U.K.
