Streets: Jeff Soto x Maxx242 (Riverside) – Part II

After stopping by to check in on the progress of the joint mural between Jeff Soto (interviewed) and Maxx242 in Riverside, we dropped by a couple days ago to see the finished two-wall piece.

Streets: Jeff Soto x Maxx242 (Riverside) – Part I

Like they have in the past (see Berlin & Luxembourg), Jeff Soto (interviewed) and Maxx242 are collaborating on a new mural in Riverside, California.

Head over to University and Lemon if you are in the area to see them complete their joint effort later today. Discuss Jeff Soto here.

Streets: Jeff Soto & Maxx242 (Berlin) – Part I

It looks like Jeff Soto (interviewed) is scratching his street art itch again (see Hawaii) with a new mural in Berlin, this time with his friend Maxx242. Bringing back the reoccurring owl that is seen in his work (like last year in Richmond), Soto will be combining his skills with his fellow Riverside-based artist friend Maxx242. The two are in town for Pictoplasma, which starts Saturday (April 13th) – so stop by if you are in town to hear them speak. Discuss Jeff Soto here.
