A mostly self-taught artist, Webber grew up in Ravenswood housing Projects, Long Island City, Queens, New York. He first became fascinated with art while watching his mother draw brilliantly colored cartoons on torn brown bags. He attended and graduated from the High School of Art and Design in New York city.
One of the wonderful things about Webber's works is his refusal to view the 'ways of black folk' as something 'dirty' or a thing that must be concealed from the rest of the world. By shifting his focus toward what makes African Americans similar as opposed to different from other races, Webber captures the inherent humility found in a people, as they simply live out their day to day existence. Through the use of his dynamic technique, simple ordinary folk are elevated into the supreme by their experience. Within these experiences, we are allowed to witness their true completeness, due in part to his desire to show not only their joy but also their pain. Webber's work has been exhibited and collected throughout the United States.
The artist resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
