Oklahoma-born Artists and Rock Rebels Matthew and Mark Enger moved to New York in 1989. From their first lower Broadway studio they began making paintings and silkscreen prints. By 1990 Matt was working with Robert Rauschenberg and Mark was working with Kiki Smith. Influenced by Pop Art, Fashion, Outlaw Rock and Roll, Native American History and New York City, the Brothers Work is a profusion of paintings, prints, line drawings, drips and vivid colors: an iconoclastic view of American history, Hollywood and their own lives.

In 1999 the Enger Brothers were recruited by Internet pioneer Josh Harris to produce fine art for his Quiet Project and subsequent We Live in Public Project. Matt and Mark are featured artists in Josh Harris’s 2009 Sundance Film Festival First place Documentary “We Live in Public”. The Enger Brothers continue to create original works of art that compel and relate all the chaos, design and excitement of their unique vision.
