Selected Works

 

The Conner Brothers, born in 1968, in Missouri, live and work between New York and Missouri.

The Connor Brothers first entered the art scene as American twins Franklyn and Brendan Connor brought up within a pseudo-Christian cult known as The Family whose leader, David Berg, preached and practiced a fanatical, perverse form of Christianity. At the age of 16, they escaped to New York where they developed a methodology to understanding the outside world, wherein they would each explore their surroundings and share their discoveries with each other through their notebooks and sketchpads. It was by this process that the Connor brothers began creating their artworks together. The duo sold out at the London 14 Art Fair and exhibitions in Sydney and Los Angeles and set an auction record at Bonhams in London. However, in October 2014, they confessed their backstory was a fabrication and art dealers Mike Snelle and James Golding exposed themselves as the Connor Brothers. The revelation of their identity has seen a huge increase in sales with their works having been sold alongside the such legends as Banksy and Damien Hirst at Christie’s and Bonham’s.
