The exhibition has now been extended due to popular demand (and corona)

Following a successful debut at Jealous East, ‘Earthlings’ is ready to take over the walls of Jealous North. ‘Earthlings’ explores human experience and our situation and impact on Earth, as well as looking far beyond into the awe-inspiring cosmos. On surface level, Webb’s dynamic and energetic artworks are visually intriguing due to Webb’s unique style. On a deeper level, these works challenge the viewer to consider physical issues such as our impact on the planet as well as social and gendered issues, usually with a humorous spin. Webb questions our perceptions of reality, contemplating our place, purpose and identity on Earth.

 

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.
