Graphic Eye Play

Illustrator Noma Bar creates deceptively simple, trompe l’oeil compositions. For a new series of covers for Wallpaper, he took his work into three dimensions, constructing room sets using iconic designed objects, effectively flattening a room into surrealist blocks of color with the objects playing the tricks. Bar also does great book jacket designs, including some wonderfully minimal interpretations of Don Delillo’s collection, and redesigns for the Spellman series.
