Nomad Clan, bio
Nomad Clan is the collective of Cbloxx and AYLO, an internationally-acclaimed, street art muralist duo based in Manchester UK, proudly represented by The Art of Protest Gallery York and sponsored by Kobra Spray Paint.
The power and pathos in their designs, and fine art, showcase both the craft and social awareness of cultural flux for which they are known. Although primarily recognised for their iconic monumental street murals in the UK and around the world; 2018 sees this formidable collective moving their dialogues to more intimate conversations in a gallery format with the collaboration with Art of Protest Gallery, York.
The pair collaborating creates an artistic fusion that delivers their unmistakable 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 tales they hear in the local public spaces. 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.
They are 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.
