Dangerous Idea 2020 by The Connor Brothers is part of a pair of exclusive limited edition prints created by the Connor Brothers in collaboration with TI Media. Publishers of LivingEtc, Wallpaper* and several other magazines.
Runway Gallery were able to organise that the artists had exclusive access to TI Media’s back catalogue of magazines and images. . In this library dating back to the 1800’s, is a plethora of articles and illustrations.
