About

Hang-Up Gallery is pleased to introduce Pulp Friction, the inaugural solo exhibition from collage artist Joe Webb. Webb collects vintage magazines and printed ephemera from which he painstakingly creates beautiful dreamlike collages, by hand, with no computers. Heavily drawn to iconic and nostalgic images, the Pulp Friction exhibition nods to this 1950s romance era where the majority of his collage imagery has been sourced. Belgian artist Rene Magritte is undeniably a key influence in his work, evident in how Webb will remove parts of the original image leaving just the outline of the key characters.

Joe Webb is a British artist who uses vintage magazines and printed ephemera that he has collected to create hand-made low-fi collages, no computer trickery in sight. Webb re-invents the imagery taken from his collection of printed materials to create simple and elegant, yet surreal and witty images that explore love and longing. Earlier this year, Webb exhibited at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery followed by a solo exhibition at Hang-Up Gallery, both of which were sell out shows. Following Joe’s success, he has produced artwork for The Madden Brothers latest album, and both Cameron Diaz and Janelle Monae now have works in their collections.
