Maddox Gallery, Mayfair presents a new series of work by The Connor Brothers

LONDON.- Maddox Gallery, Mayfair presents a new series of work by The Connor Brothers.

The Connor Brothers emerged onto the art scene as mysterious American twins, Franklyn and Brendan Connor, who were brought up within an extremist Christian cult known as 'The Family’, and who had escaped to Brooklyn where they began creating artwork in order to make sense of the world they had been deprived of. In October 2014 these characters were revealed to be a myth; The Connor Brothers were actually art dealers turned artists Mike Snelle and James Golding.

The Connor Brothers’ work is satirical and humorous in nature and explores the blurring of boundaries between truth and fiction. Mimicking vintage book cover imagery, often from romantic novels or Shakespeare classics, the artists reproduce the covers as large-scale acrylic and oil paintings, modifying the book titles with their own text, changing the message while maintaining the context.

The Connor Brothers’ have been auctioned alongside Banksy and Damien Hirst at Christie's and Bonham's. Their work has been sold at numerous art fairs in London, and there have been sell-out shows at galleries in London, Los Angeles and Sydney. In 2015 they curated Pussy Riot’s performance at Banksy’s Dismaland exhibition. In December 2017 they will debut previously unseen oil paintings at Art Miami with Maddox Gallery.

Maddox Gallery is fast emerging as one of the most stylish young contemporary art destinations in the UK. 2017 has seen the gallery exhibit the phenomenally successful London exhibition from New York based artist Bradley Theodore and David Yarrow’s acclaimed solo exhibition The Untouchables. Last spring Maddox Gallery made global headlines when it exhibited ‘Make America Great Again’ the provocative Donald Trump nude by Ilma Gore. Censored by Facebook, it became the first truly viral artwork of the Instagram age and provoked political, social and creative debate across the globe. In under two years Maddox Gallery has opened three Central London locations, the first its flagship Mayfair destination, a beautiful 3750 square foot Victorian townhouse in Maddox Street, the second in the heart of Mayfair’s Shepherd Market and the third a recently opened 4000 square foot space in Westbourne Grove. Their roster of cutting edge international contemporary artists and photographers includes David Yarrow, Bradley Theodore, RETNA, The Connor Brothers, Dan Baldwin, Danny Minnick, Massimo Agostinelli, Chris Moon, Tyler Shields, Tony Kelly, Bran Symondson and Michael Moebius.
