"We live in the age of the internet, Social media has many positive and negative aspects, but it undeniably plays a crucial role in raising awareness. Its a powerful tool that mobilises/informs the public and more than ever we have the opportunity to come together and speak out about social injustice both online and through direct action."
— Nomad Clan
Nomad Clan is the collective of Cbloxx and AYLO, an internationally-acclaimed, street art muralist duo based in Manchester UK.
When the pair collaborate the fusion delivers an unmistakeable style. Each mural has a strong significance to the environment it sits in, combining playful scenes often from local heritage with detailed portraits of characters from some of the the tales they hear in the local watering holes. The main focus of the work is to proudly celebrate local history but on a deeper level often contains the socioeconomic issues effecting the area, for example the demise of the fishing industry, the closures of mills and lack of jobs, inner city social deprivation, etc. The pair are on a quest to raise awareness for varying social justice issues, environmental concerns and more.
Nomad Clan have been noted as 'One of street art’s finest female duos' by Widewalls magazine the worlds largest street art online publication, as well as 'Street arts hottest UK talent' by Global Street Art blog and pegged as one of the top 5 female street artist in the world by The Guardian News Paper. The duo are also responsible for painting the tallest mural in the UK!
