Scaf: the French artist whose realistic graffiti art seems to Jump off the walls

As lockdowns loosen, people start wandering into the streets to appreciate fresh air, open spaces, but also some more or less decent graffiti on the walls. But there is an artist really incredible: his stage name is scaf, or scaf_oner on Instagram and, moreover, he isn’t a mere “vandal”. “I love to paint in all of these abandoned places. Above all, I like abandoned houses, manors, castles and factories,” he said.
By doing so, he transforms them and adds extra value to them, rather than the opposite and the work is made that much better by the whimsical photographs that Scaf takes of each piece.
In order to highlight his graffiti in the best way possible, the artist actually interacts with his art. His sense of humor is deeply connected with his works, as he hopes that through his work people will get in touch with their inner child and be transported to a different world.

On a technical level, Scaf’s work is incredibly precise. His understanding of angles and perspective allows him to create 3D illusions from flat surfaces with ease. Always pushing himself to new levels, Scaf is constantly thinking of new subjects and scenarios to paint in order to delight the viewer.
The French street artist’s trademark is his extremely detailed and realistic style. He draws all sorts of animals, dinosaurs and snakes, but also skulls and bones, robots, and other cool stuff.
By the time the artist is done, his work looks picture-perfect, as if he glued a print of a photo, and everything is in its place: details, shadows, highlights, and flair.

His success as an artist has also led him to start his own company, Grafo Deco, where he offers his services to private clients and businesses.
