THE CONNOR BROTHERS

The Connor Brothers first burst onto the art scene in 2013 as mysterious twin brothers; Franklyn and Brendan Connor, who escaped from a controversial and enigmatic Christian cult called 'The Family'. After perpetrating this fictional biography for 18 months, the duo decided to break cover. Truly, they are Mike Snelle and James Golding. The recent revelation of their identity has seen a huge increase in sales with their work having been sold alongside Banksy and Damien Hirst at Christie's and Bonham's.

The Connor Brothers work explores the boundaries between truth and fiction and shares similar contexts experienced in their lives.

Their work questions how we construct meaning from experience and regularly blurs the line between the two.  Using collage to subvert the meaning of old master paintings and vintage romance novels, The Connor Brothers cast a cynical and penetrating eye at contemporary culture. Their work reinterprets objects from the past and in doing so provides a humorous commentary on contemporary societies obsession with wealth, fame and the unrealistic idealism of advertisings' vision of relationships.

The Connor Brothers have recently been included in contemporary auctions at both Christies and Bonhams, and can be found in collections worldwide including The Victoria and Albert Museum. They have exhibited internationally and in 2015 curated Pussy Riot’s performance at Banksy’s Dismaland exhibition. Their work is held in private and public collections all over the world, including, London, New York, Hong Kong, Germany, Los Angeles, Sydney, Melbourne, Cape Town and Johannesburg.
