Artist statement  

Nomad Clan is the collective of Cbloxx and AYLO, an internationally-acclaimed, street art muralist duo with bases in Los Angles U.S.A and  in Manchester UK. 

The power and pathos in their muralism 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 around  the world they are no stranger to installations and studio based works.  

Through years of collaboration Nomad Clan have fine tuned their artistic fusion that delivers an unmistakable  style. Each mural has a strong significance to the environment it sits in. The main focus of the work is to proudly celebrate local history, folklore and  heritage but on a deeper level often contains the socioeconomic issues affecting the area, for example the  demise of the fishing industry, environmental awareness, the plight of refugees & migration, closures of mills  and lack of jobs, inner city social deprivation and other politicized topics. NC's extensive muralism has given  them insight into less publicized global issues, whether out in the desert wastelands of California exploring largely abandoned towns, running creative projects in Flint during the water crisis or working out in refugee  camps in Calais, each experience creeps into studio work and muralism alike and with this fusion of past and  present the viewer is invited to explore, compare and contrast. 

Nomad Clan have been noted as 'One of street art’s finest duos' by Widewalls magazine the world's largest street art online publication, as well as 'Street arts hottest UK talent' by Global Street Art and pegged  as one of the top 5 street artist in the world by The Guardian NewsPaper.
