The Connor Brothers, Franklyn and Brendan, are fictional twins who were brought up within an extremist Christian cult referred to as ‘The Family.’ Growing up, the twins did not experience life away from the commune, and so upon entering the outside world they were soon overwhelmed.

The duo were subsequently revealed to be British art dealers turned artists Mike Snelle and James Golding. The Connor Brothers have exhibited in galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Sydney, Dubai, London, Hong Kong, and Berlin.
