Details

The Connor Brothers (who aren't really Brothers), Mike Snelle and James Golding, have taken the 21st Century art market by storm. With arguably one of the most intriguing messages behind each piece of art, exploring the fine line between truth and fiction as the golden thread that runs through life. 

“It is the paradox of art that artifice is often the best way to depict reality, fiction the best way to challenge conventional ideas of what we think of as ‘the truth’. Most people are happy to think that this is the way it is. But it really isn’t. Who knows the truth of anything?” (Mike Snelle)

The Connor Brothers have created retro style figurative images which encourage us to challenge our assumptions and preconceptions, and as a result to perhaps see the world a little differently. Their interest in undermining our assumptions and casual acceptance of cultural norms is reflected in their extraordinary background.

Their playful artistic twist on the world is inspired by the iconic cover art of Pulp Fiction, accompanied by words from the world’s greatest poets, cynics and wits. These satirical juxtapositions of cliché and brilliance strike a chord with the modern age. Thought provoking and ironic, they invite us to think about the difference between appearance and reality, between what we see, what we think we see, and what we want to see.

Today Mike and Steve align their work with social causes. After working for several years in the notorious French refugee camp known as The Jungle, they launched the Refuchic billboard campaign, which forced us to examine our attitude to poverty and displacement. They have created a refugee-themed show at Banksy’s Dismaland, and they continue to work with mental health charity, CALM.
