French street artist Scaf adds a whimsical touch to mundane city spaces with his 3D graffiti illusions

His works typically feature realistic and larger-than-life paintings of wild animals like lions, cheetahs, snakes, and more. And as if that weren’t enough to cause panic in the city, he also makes them look as though they’re coming out of hiding and ready to wreak havoc. Indeed, his magnificent murals take the rather dull “concrete jungle” to a whole new whimsical level.

In some cases, he also incorporates pop culture icons into his creations for an exciting twist. And as for the final touch, he takes photos with his creations and poses as part of the scene to complete the illusion. He also shares before and after shots of the spots he transforms, which all the more makes his works impressive.

More than showcasing his artistry, Scaf aims to spread happiness through his works

 

“The main goal is to make people smile. So that the people who discover my paintings will have a moment of lightness in a world where everything goes so fast and crazy. I watch a lot of cartoons. My goal is also to get away from the problems of everyday life and dream.”
