The Connor Brothers

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 magazine, allowing them to undertake more ambitious projects. The Connor Brothers have been amongst the most prominent artistic voices to comment on the refugee crisis, having worked in The Jungle refugee camp in Calais building shelters and on an international billboard campaign, Refuchic, highlighting the plight of displaced people.  Closely associated with the Russian activist group Pussy Riot, The Connor Brothers produced their 2015 refugee themed theatrical performance at Banksy’s Dismaland. More recently they have teamed up with Professor Green and the mental health charity CALM to raise funds and awareness about the UK’s epidemic of male depression and suicide. 

The Connor Brothers exhibited internationally in London, Sydney, Dubai, Hong Kong and Berlin, including solo shows at Maddox Gallery and Guy Hepner. Works have been included in major auction houses such as Christie’s and Bonhams with a record set at Phillips London in 2018. Major collections include the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Penguin books art collection and the Omer Koc and Niarchos Collections.
