Hidden behind the long-adopted fictional façade of The Connor Brothers - twin brothers who escaped from a secretive Christian cult at the age of sixteen -, the once-mysterious duo formed by the British artists Mike Snelle and James Golding has been enchanting the art world with its refashioning of 1950’s paperback covers with sardonic and thought-provoking slogans. Their work explores the boundary between fiction and truth, real and fake, the ageless paradox at the heart of art itself.
Normal is the Cruelest of All Insults is amongst The Connor Brother’s best-selling works. Featuring a vintage pin-up beauty in a defiant and seductive pose, a captivating scarlet background and one of their enrapturing captions, this print challenges our everyday construction of reality. The duo’s highly-collectable prints and paintings have achieved impressive commercial success and have already earned a coveted place in worldwide collections.
