Guess who? : the many faces of Noma Bar

"It requires skilled eyes and hands for artists to render subjects by translating their personalities, physical traits and careers into a few well-executed lines. Having worked for such publications as The New York Times. The Economist and Esquire, Noma Bar is one artist capable of such visual feats. Bar has made a career of creating unique caricatures through illustrations that rely on the power of association, and sometimes a bit of imagination. Stephen King has hatchet eyes; broken chains accent Nelson Mandela's facial expression; Joseph Stalin's nose and mouth are shaped like the hammer and sickle. All of Bar's faces exude the power of the visual, in that we recognize who they are through what they do."--Global Books in Print
