Introducing Joe Webb
Here at Red Eight Gallery we’re starting the new year by welcoming the talented Joe Webb to our ever-growing family of artists.
Joe Webb started out as a graphic designer before falling out of love with the technology side of art and turning his attention to ‘analogue’ collage.Creating beautiful, hand-crafted collages with strong undercurrents and profound messages embedded into each piece, the artist produces inspired, layered artworks that have been sold in 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, and war, all whilst questioning our place in the universe. Webb skilfully weaves in a little bit of humour as well – provoking 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 also supports charities such as The Eden Project, Peace One Day, Heart Research UK and the The Big Issuewith artwork donations.
