'Ruins to Riches'
La Belle De Mai,
Supported by Asso Juxtapoz, Hiphop Society, East Street Arts and Electron Libre during a 3 week residency at Le Couvant.
Film by. Studio Bokehgo
Special thanks to Brouettes et compagnie for their support.
The giant corner mural tells the story of Marseille, in particular the area of La Belle De Mai, painted on the old to***co factory that was once an economic pillar supporting the local community, it is now a thriving creative hub named La Belle Friche, complete with art studios, skate park, theatre etc.
The mural to the right depicts an old worker wearing a trademark 'Belle de Mai' blue over coat. She walks amongst the ruins of the old Greek empire that founded the city, the financial divide of Marseille weighs on her hunched shoulders.
To the left the future of Marseille with its rich cultural diversity, outstanding natural beauty, ancient history and a younger generation absorbed by knowledge and creativity.... breaking free from the corruption and un employment that has made Marseille the most poverty stricken city in France.
Atelier Juxtapoz converted a nun's convent into 80 + artist studios and residency living quarters which would become our home for the three weeks we stayed in Marseille.
The previous residents lived a life of silent order within the convent walls, the only time they left the confines would be their last. As city buildings grew in hight and modern life began to creep its way in, the nuns moved from the area of Belle de Mai to seek the solitude of rural life.
Luckily this gem of a place with its acres of walled gardens has been given to the artists of Atelier for the next 3 years, who have consequently thrown open their doors to the local community so that they can enjoy the green space which is a rarity in this area. Atelier and its residents run workshops for young people, are cultivating an allotment with local asylum seekers and people struggling with mental health issues as well as bringing a whole host of international artists over to create site specific art instillations and murals. It truly is a beautiful band aid bringing people together and offering hope to a largely forgotten community.

Roll on the weekend, Nomad Clan will be painting the Upfest - The Urban Paint Festival, come and pester us :D

We held our workshops with the young people who visit Jungle books cafe, the cafe was the life blood for so many unaccompanied refugee kids in the camp. It makes me SICK that the French police have done this!! Mary & the volunteers have given everything to keep this place running. Please please donate to help them continue their mission to feed and nurture some of the most vulnerable children on the planet.

Neglected cbloxx social media.. We are so busy with nomad clan ! Here's a shot from a workshop last wkend, still love to run the odd one!
Our tempest video is now available for your viewing pleasure!
This is "Kobra x Nomad Clan Present: Tempest" by nomadclan on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.
The last time we went big!! Cant wait for the next!
On the 7th November Nomad Clan artists Aylo & Cbloxx headed from Manchester to Liverpool to create their biggest mural to date. The challenge - to paint the 21m high outside wall of The Tempest building in 2 weeks.
The project was sponsored by Kobra Paint and commissioned by Capital Centric who pride themselves in offering creative and inspiring office spaces in tune with eco issues.
From the very first day Nomad Clan were faced with the challenge of England’s weather, creating the artwork grid in pouring rain with just enough time to lay down initial outlines before darkness fell.
The next day brought little change in weather but a glimpse of colour was brought to the mural which took inspiration from its environment while telling its our story.
Street Art Atlas arrived on the 3rd day of work in progress, Nomad Clan were already well on the way to creating a thought provoking mural.The face of a nomadic female character with an air of attitude looked down from the huge wall set amongst a vivid green background. A plumb bee and colourful beehives had taken shape hoovering along side.
An interesting aspect of The Tempest are the beehives on the building’s roof that contain 180,000 bees installed to help the UK’s falling bee count. Nomad linked this into their work by referencing bee hives, bees and the ‘bee hive’ hair style that would be painted. Dripping honey referenced the honey Tempest produce from the hives.
As the days passed the depth of detail in their work grew with layers of colour and different techniques. The colour palette was quite different from past works with bright yellow and piercing blues. Cbloxx explained that painting with Aylo brings a lighter, more playful side to her creativity, working together to create the Nomad Clan signature style.
The nomadic character, which is often depicted in their work in some form carrying a backpack symbolises a modern day take on mother nature and a reminder to never stop exploring - to engage in new experiences. The green background depicts nature in what can be a grey concrete environment, bringing colour and improving the architecture, a focus of Capital Centric.
Unlike most portrayed women in nature this character isn’t romanticised but has an edgy side to her with tattoos that link to Liverpool’s maritime heritage and the bees.
Planets and stars were added to the character’s backpack. This was a personal link to Nomad’s childhood passion of astrology, reminding us not to forget our passions, that the world can be a magical place and dreams should be followed. This is much like Nomad following their desire to paint no matter what hurdles they faced.
The weather was certainly a hurdle on this project, as we experienced most extremes, high winds, rain, hail stones and the brief glimpse of sun. The severe weather cut down painting time to some 3hrs on numerous days. However this did not deter the enthusiasm and Nomad’s dedication to the project was commendable. Through illness and rough sleeping conditions they still carried on.
By all means it was not doom and gloom, each day a new aspect would lift our spirts from the excitement of The Drone filming to the fun of Aylo’s proud invention of the ‘Mad Cam’ we used to film time lapses.
Towards the end of the first week the lower half of the mural saw a new addition, a Liver bird. A symbol of the city of Liverpool, represented in the form of a cormorant. The birds on the Liver Building are believed to be designed to watch over the city and the sea. Just as this mural, the Liver bird belongs to all people of Liverpool. The highlight techniques created on this particular part are striking, the teal colour adds an effective glow and silkiness to the birds feathers. Just as striking is the energy created in the water and how cleverly the ship tattoo is thought out to sit on the wave of water.
Around the Liver bird, Autumn leaves began to form in rich colours, symbolising an ever changing environment often true in street art and new beginnings to businesses within Liverpool.
In the second week further detail was added. Spray cans were replaced with rollers and paint as work started on the bee hive hair. Unfortunately the scissor lift would only go so high so the very top part could not be reached.
Adding Liverpool’s native flower emblem Sea holly gave pink splashes of colour with floating petals and light beams effects adding softness to the work.
The mural was a spontaneous creation from the original illustration with additional ideas being added as it progressed. One of these included a large fish jumping out of the water which could well be seen as a link to Liverpool’s prime angling.
Attention from passers by was positive with both children and older generation wanting to try their hand at painting a block of colour on the wall. The resident bees seemed to improve too by pausing for a moment on the wall.
The mural details a mix of graffiti, illustrative and realistic styles, making it appealing to all generations.
Nomad Clan have not only created the highest mural in Liverpool but exceeded Capital Centric’s statement “Lets make it awesome” ...
and AWESOME it is!
The mural can be found at Tempest,Tithebarn Street, Liverpool.
Nomad Clan are set for more Capital Centric projects in the near future, so this is sure to be the beginning of something big.
