Joe Webb nearly broke the internet – or, at least, his work became a viral sensation, forwarded by hundreds of thousands of scrollers. Blame a relatable topicality rendered through hard-hitting, thought-provoking imagery: one collage features a family by a duck-filled pond with the kids glued to tablets. Webb originally began making his pieces as a reaction to his computer-focused graphic design job. Turning away from the screen, he revelled in the simplicity of using two or three print images to create totally new worlds.
