Noma Bar’s ‘Bittersweet’

Noma Bar pulls from his extensive portfolio, and from his life, in releasing his book, entitled “Bittersweet”. The Israel-born graphic artist, who has worked with the likes of Haruki Murakami and Don DeLillo, entices the understanding of the man at the end of the pencil by exploring his distinct works. Bar takes us all the way back to his childhood in the 60s, then to his college years in 90s Jerusalem, through to his time in London and to now. His work touches on a sundry of themes, including music, animals, travel, but most explicitly, sex. In Bar’s own words, “Sex is a sensitive subject, and it seems to me that illustration is a great way to deal with that sensitivity.” Using negative space in creating a positive message, Bar’s works are aptly shrewd and emotive, and always guaranteed to bring a smirk to one’s face. “Bittersweet” is available for purchase via publishers Thames & Hudson here, and be sure to visit Bar’s own site here.
