This artist creates controversial collages to examine the “craziness of the modern world.”


When the news bums you out too many days in a row, it’s time to make art. That’s what Joe Webbart is doing to help make sense of the “craziness of the modern world.”

The artist shared with Bored Panda that he makes collages from newspapers, mixing up one image with another (all which are usually sourced from the same magazine), to examine the contrast which exists on planet Earth.

He says:

“All of my images are hand-made, without the use of computers. I find the images in newspapers, magazines given on trains, buses and bins.

My collages work to a basic rule of sourcing just two or three images. With these I can reinvent the original scene to communicate a new idea.

I suppose I’ve become fairly anti-technology. Although I now promote my art on websites, own an iPhone and use Facebook. It’s confusing, I wish I had been born 100 years ago.”


Each collage is incredibly thought-provoking, to say the least.
