Creating beautiful, hand-crafter collages, with strong undercurrents and profound messages embedded into each piece, Joe Webb creates layered artwork. Starting out as a graphic designer he fell out of love with the technology side of art a little and turned his attention to ‘analogue’ collage, selling his works in the prestigious establishments such as the Saatchi Gallery, Webb prefers the serendipity of working with collages, there’s no undo or adjusting, once set that’s it. He manages to find a good balance between tackling issues to do with environment, inequality, war all whilst questioning our place in the universe and mixing in a little bit of humour as well – it provokes us to become more aware, conscious and content.
Webb’s work has become on online sensation with hundreds of thousands of people sharing his images on the internet. As well as going viral in the virtual world, Joe has exhibited and sold work internationally. His original collages and prints can be found in the Saatchi Gallery, 45 Park Lane and in the collections of Coldplay, Eric Cantona, The Madden Brothers and Janelle Monae. He supports, with artwork donations, charities such as The Eden Project, Peace One Day, Heart Research UK and the The Big Issue.
