Joe Webb is a British collage artist that makes art with a message. Webb makes collages using vintage magazines that have a politically charged underpinning. He examines issues such as climate change, war, and inequality – looking at the challenges of living in today’s modern world.
“I started making these simple hand-made collages as a sort of luddite reaction to working as a graphic artist on computers for many years. I like the limitations of collage…using found imagery and a pair of scissors, there are no Photoshop options to resize, adjust colours or undo.
My collages work to a basic rule of sourcing just two or three images… with these I can reinvent the original scene to communicate a new idea.” — Joe Webb
