British collage artist Joe Webb (b. 1976, London) began his artistic career as graphic designer, making the leap to be a full-time artist in 2012.
He graduated from his BA in Fine Art at the University of Arts London, and after years of following a commercial art pathway he decided to break free of a computer and desk and make hand-cut collages as a means of escapism.
After gaining momentum online with his work going viral, Webb was encouraged to enter into a Saatchi Gallery competition with his work ‘Antares & Love II’. After winning, he was offered an exhibition at the gallery a year later, and his success has continued ever since.
Webb’s work has been bought by Coldplay, his work cited for their music video ‘Up&Up’, and he has been commissioned by record label companies to make the album art for music artists such as Janelle Monae and Tears for Fears.
Webb has had solo exhibitions in various galleries including Jealous Gallery (London), Hang Up Gallery (London), and Feinkunst Kruger (Hamburg), as well as group exhibitions at Hicks Gallery (London), For Arts Sake (London), London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Art (London), Enter Gallery (Brighton), Turner Barnes Gallery (Chelmsford), Chappell Contemporary (Whitstable), and The Cat Street Gallery (Hong Kong).
Webb lives and works in Sussex.
