Joe Webb returns to Jealous with 'Earthlings’, his much anticipated third solo exhibition at the gallery. The collection explores the human experience, examining our impact on the planet as well as looking far beyond into the awe-inspiring cosmos. His colourful and vibrant artworks challenge us to reflect on serious environmental and societal issues, often with an injection of dark humour. Delving deeper, he questions our perceptions of reality, contemplating our place and purpose in an infinite Universe.

Webb's artworks are made from images serendipitously found in second hand bookshops, cut out and rearranged to create simple but elegant hand-made collages. He works to a rule of juxtaposing two or three simple images to invent a new narrative, without the aid of computer manipulation. The new exhibition also features new large scale oil paintings, which he has developed from ideas taken from the original collages.

Named one of the Evening Standard’s most ‘Exciting Young British Artists to Look Out For’ in 2017, Webb has won an army of high-profile fans including Coldplay, who cited his work as inspiration for their Grammy Award-nominated Up and Up video. His work has also graced album covers by Janelle Monae, The Madden Brothers and Tears For Fears.

More recently the artist collaborated with pop sensation Dua Lipa to produce a series of animated collages for her new album. 'Earthlings' features new original collages, rare and previously sold out editions as well as new large scale oil on linen paintings. This is the first time a collection of his paintings have been exhibited together in the UK

Joe Webb (1976) uses vintage magazines and printed ephemera that he has collected to create simple but elegant hand-made collages. After many years of working on computer sasagraphic artist, Joe turned his back on technology and started making ‘analogue’ collages. Since then Joe has published many popular silkscreen prints, displayed his work in the Saatchi Gallery, sold work to celebrities and had his work featured on album covers. Webb's work is also an internet sensation with hundreds of thousands of people sharing his images online.
