Tang Yau Hoong’s art makes negative space a positive thing

Thanks to the always-amazing folks at Neatorama, we discovered graphic designer and artist Tang Yau Hoong. His site has plenty of great images that are creative, whimsical, and often require you to think for a moment. You can see pictures below from a group he fittingly calls “Negative Space.” In art, an image is made clear when the artist uses positive space – they draw a building. But in order to represent that building using negative space, the artist would have to draw everything around the building. Whatever space is left over creates its own image. Tang Yau Hoog takes this a step further with plenty of humor and pop references.
