The American artists and muralists Jeff Soto and Maxx242 visited Berlin during the Pictoplasma this month, to create a huge mural on an empty wall right beside the Kunsthalle Platoon, after speaking and participating at a conference and the festival celebrating character design.

Pictoplasma is the world’s leading festival of contemporary character culture and it’s taking place in Berlin right now with numerous exhibitions, conferences and screenings at over 23 project spaces, galleries and art venues throughout the city.
I found some time to visit one of those project spaces today, the PLATOON KUNSTHALLE, an art gallery constructed of 34 standard shipping containers. Inside, visitors had the opportunity to be creative, whether during a Mochimochi Monster Knitting live workshop or with chalk lying all around the place.
