About Alloyius Mciwaine: Philadelphia-born and based artist, Alloyius McIlwaine, paints in a signature style that colorfully combines pop art, street art, and comic book illustration. Whether painting a mural or on canvas, his work dances freely in colored planes, vibrating with geometric abstraction. He often features symbolic shapes, “Kudoglyphs”, which give visual language to positive affirmations. After experimenting with watercolor, acrylic, oil, charcoal, and sculpture, McIlwaine found peace in the abstract, free-styled murals, developed on-site without any expectations of the outcome. This freedom of expression, of allowing the art to flow through him, led to the development of a signature artistic language that floats happily between figuration and abstraction. McIlwaine has created a vast body of recognizable work recently including national artistic campaigns for Pepsi x Philadelphia Eagles, NBC Universal, Makers Mark, Pressed Juicery, Honeygrow, and more.
