Note: The Connor Brothers is the pseudonym for British artists James Golding and Mike Snelle. The duo came to prominence in 2012 and for several years maintained their anonymity by using a fictional biography. Their identities were revealed in 2014 in a major feature by Mick Brown in The Telegraph. The Connor Brothers have exhibited internationally in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, Hong Kong, Dubai, Berlin and London. Their work frequently appears at major auction houses where a record price was achieved in 2016. Works can also be found in major public and private collections including The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Penguin Collection The Omer Koc Collection, the Vanhaerents Collection, and The Niarchos Collections.
