Mike Snelle and James Golding—who make art under the moniker “the Connor Brothers”—juxtapose pin-up style portraits of women with blocks of solid color and deadpan snippets of text.

The British artists’ chic, slick paintings and works on paper explore artifice and sensational storytelling, themes that they initially folded into their fictional artist personas: The Connor Brothers at first maintained that they were twin brothers who had escaped from a California cult to start creating art, although they have since shed this fictional backstory.

The Connor Brothers have exhibited in London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, and Sydney.
