The Connor Brothers and TYPE
Considering that TYPE is a collection of works that combine image with blunt, witty text, you can see how The Connor Brothers are the perfect fit.
Mike Snelle speaks to Hang-Up, saying "The British are known for their dark self-deprecating humour and this reflects the art we make. It is also a useful distraction from our inability to draw well.”
The Connor Brother's punchy, humourous artwork has been hugely successful, leading them to having their work sold alongside the likes of Damien Hirst and Banksy at Bonham's and Christie's. The V&A have also taken some work by The Connor Brothers into their permanent collection!
Above: Hang-Up visit The Connor Brother's Studio to view the new collection of books for TYPE.
You can check out their brand new collection of pulp fiction vintage books created for TYPE by clicking here.
Their work has become another form of talking about their experiences with the world as they question what reality is under a veil of dry, british humour.
Do not forget to RSVP for the private view on March the 15th if you haven't already. It is going to be an incredible evening. (RSVP HERE)
