Bitter Sweet, a new exhibition of illustrator Noma Bar's work, opens tonight at KK Outlet in London's Hoxton Square...

Fans of Bar's work will recognise some of the imagery exhibited in the show – which runs until April 30 – from his most recently published book, Negative Space, published by Mark Batty Publisher last year – although, specially for this show, Bar has transformed flat illustrations into a variety of objects that include 3D wood cuts, installation pieces, screenprints and light boxes, all available to buy.

KK Outlet has very kindly sent us a selection of images (photography by Francis Ware) of some of the work in the show (which was hung yesterday) to preview here...

Noma is a true talent, great to see his work go into the 3rd dimension. Next, the 4th?

Noma is great. Plus I do enjoy calling famous peeps by just there first name as if I know them personally.

A huge talent. This is the cleverest work I've seen for years. Loved the Negative Space work too.
