We had the good fortune of connecting with Alloyius Mcilwaine and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alloyius, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think the most important factor behind my success and the success of my brand is constant hustle…and using social media to my advantage as my best marketing tool. I always make sure to produce new content on almost a daily basis, so I’m constantly flooding social media with my work. As a result of the high visibility that comes from this, I’ve noticed that whenever new art opportunities arise, people tend to send them my way. That has greatly contributed to the success that I have today.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m an artist/muralist with over 400 murals painted worldwide…including murals in Paris, London, Tokyo, Costa Rica, Casablanca, Punta Cana, Miami, LA, NYC, Philly and more! I’m known for my abstract shapes that I’m developing into a visual language called “Kudoglyphs”…and my “Muses” series of paintings and murals.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Being an artist, my favorite area of the city is definitely Wynwood. I just love the art culture in the area, and the plethora of styles that you see covering the whole area…featuring artists from all over the world!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d definitely like to thank my family (especially my mom, dad, sister and cousins) and my close friends (including Brianna Ackley, Julian Vann, Steve Scott, Anastacia Jane, Emily Taylor Rogers, Joe DeCandido, etc.) for being a constant source of support for me. Without their support, I definitely wouldn’t be in the position that I’m in today.

I’d also like to give a shout out to Morton Contemporary and SoHa Arts for showcasing my art!
