How to remove the space between subplots in Matplotlib.pyplot?

To remove the space between subplots in matplotlib, we can use GridSpec(3, 3) class and add axes as a subplot arrangement.


  • Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.
  • Add a grid layout to place subplots within a figure.
  • Update the subplot parameters of the grid
  • Iterate in the range of dimension of grid specs.
  • Add a subplot to the current figure.
  • Set the aspect ratios.
  • To display the figure, use show() method.


import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.gridspec as gridspec
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
gs1 = gridspec.GridSpec(3, 3)
gs1.update(wspace=0.5, hspace=0.1)
for i in range(9):
ax1 = plt.subplot(gs1[i])
