“An artist using “negative space” relies on the space that surrounds the subject to provide shape and meaning. Of course, the term also refers to any topic that conjures feelings of unease and discomfort,” says the artist in his latest book called ‘Negative Space’.

Bar has illustrated over sixty magazine covers, published over 550 illustrations and released two books: ‘Guess Who – The Many Faces of Noma Bar‘, in 2008 and ‘Negative Space‘ in early 2009[1].
