The Nomadé : “The masked enigma Nomade is the result of four chain-mailed street art troops in the army of the creative spirit, marching through the detritus of this crumbling modern Rome with battle skills in photography, illustration, painting, and design. Hearty Nomade rises from allegory, ceremony, aerosol and testosterone; a soldier of the people looking for adventure, valiant battle, and a realm to lord over. Cocking his helmet turned paintbrush, he peers confidently forward with formidible spear in hand as he commands a team of racing stallions with vigor, nobility, and acuity.”
