Handmade nostalgic collages by London-based Joe Webb have been enjoying the close attention of art lovers recently. This anti-technological attitude is only one of the many factors that make Webb so special. The psychedelic touch on top of pale colors and unexpected choices of space are the common characteristics to what could be deemed utterly simplistic at first sight yet turns into multi-layered works through dramatic alterations that the British artist creates in the depths of the image content. Currently the big hit on display at Saatchi Online, retro collages by the popular Joe Webb seem to have yet to create even more hype in the days to come.
