The Connor Brothers are a fictional artist duo comprising twins Franklyn and Brendan Connor who were raised within David Berg’s infamous cult “The Family”, cut off from mainstream culture and society.
As children the twins were deprived of access to information from outside of their commune. Without access to mainstream media their knowledge of the world was limited to the teachings and interactions they gained from other cult members. At sixteen the boys turned their backs on The Family and ran away from home.
The twins settled in Brooklyn and began making art as a means of “trying to make sense of the world” from the perspective of those encountering contemporary Western culture for the first time.
Their often humorous work is steeped in references to both historical and popular culture and presents an almost anthropological view of contemporary western society.
Their work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States, Great Britain and Australia.
