Some artists manage to find an unconventional expression even in the most conventional ways.
One such artist is Israeli graphic designer and illustrator Noma Bar, who has used the concept of negative space in visual communication in the most unique way.
Negative space or the space that surrounds the main object is often over looked. But Noma has managed to make such creative use of available negative spaces, that an image is never what it looks like on the first glance.
Each of Bar’s work displays a hidden meaning. And the ingenuity of his works is such, that from Coca-Cola holiday cans to GQ magazine covers to the Economist, his illustrations have been featured by many different organisations.
Here are some of his best creations:
1. Joys of drinking, and its perils too?
