Noma Bar became known worldwide for his clever and humorous depictions of cultural and political icons such as Albert Einstein, Shakespeare, Nelson Mandela and George W. Bush. His pictorial elements often merge into one another – irony and deeper meaning often only become apparent after further consideration.
Hundreds of illustrations by the Israeli-born artist have been published in major publications such as Time Out London, BBC, Random House, The Observer, The Economist and Wallpaper – but his portfolio also includes campaigns for Google, Coca-Cola, Mercedes-Benz and Apple.
Bar himself sees his works simply as a tool of visual communication: “maximum communication with minimal elements”. His awards include the Gold Clio for his 3D animation at the New York Presbyterian Hospital and the Yellow Pencil from D&AD for his exhibition “Cut It Out” at the London Design Festival.
