The Connor Brothers

About

Launching their career with an impressive fictional back story involving an escape by twin brothers from a particularly luddite American cult, the Connor Brothers (really former art dealers Mike Snelle and James Golding) produce highly-collectable paintings and prints which take a light-hearted approach to being more emotionally open. By refashioning Penguin book covers and cheap 1950s paperbacks with new, conversation-distilling slogans, they have garnered a loyal and growing following, and earned a place in worldwide collections including London’s V&A.
