Just days after Banksy’s artwork on a permanently raised Hull bridge brought widespread media attention to the city, one of the UK’s leading street artist duos has created a stunning mural of the city’s heritage and history at another significant landmark.
Unbeknown to most, the Nomad Clan – an internationally-acclaimed street-art muralist duo who create their work with spray paints, have spent the past week creating a homage to the history and heritage of East Hull – at the home of Hull Kingston Rovers.
The huge mural – which is more than 50 metres long and runs along either side of the tunnel and standing terrace of the Roger Millward Stand at KCOM Craven Park – has been created as a ‘stunning and lasting celebration of local history’.
Artists Joy Gilleard and Hayley Garner, who form the Nomad Clan, were labelled as ‘one of street art’s finest female duos’ by the world’s largest street art online publication Widewalls magazine, and ‘Street arts hottest UK talent’ by the Global Street Art blog.

The artwork will be unveiled today Friday Feb 2 at 3pm.
