The streets of cities can be quite boring and dull. That's why it's fun to see them being brought to life by amazing and creative street artists. Not all people love graffiti, but it's difficult to not like these unique and magnificent creations by Pierrot (Scaf).

The artist creates amazing 3D graffiti illusions and they look like they're about to jump off the wall. If someone didn't expect to see a dinosaur or a lion around the corner, they would be in for the scare of their life. Pierrot often takes before and after pictures of the places he transforms and it's amazing to see the transition from a simple wall to a work of art.

I hereby move that this amazing artist be hired to decorate all ugly industrial sites. Water towers, factories, and the like. We need more whimsy in life.

Pierrot started his own company where he paints his artwork for people. On his website, Pierrot writes: "Passionate about drawing, I founded my decoration company GrafoDeco. Addressing both individuals and professionals (public or private companies), event organizers, associations, or all those who are anxious to bring a touch of originality to their interior or exterior decorations. I paint all supports (walls, panels, canvases ...) and of all sizes."

Pierrot didn't study in any art schools or anything similar. He started like most street artists—on the streets. He learned everything he knows on his own or from other artists. In a previous interview, Pierrot mentioned that he was inspired by a school friend to start creating art.

I love how he's posing with his painting, but unless he wants typhoid or dysentery he better get up off that filthy floor!

Pierrot doesn't just do street art, he creates interactive optical illusions and they are very difficult to do. The level at which you have to understand perspective, light, and many other things is insane and requires a lot of experience. This shows perfectly that street art is not always just vandalism, it's also an amazing and very technical art form.

Pierrot tops off his amazing graffiti by coming up with fun ways to photograph it. He makes his art interactive so that people can take fun and unique photos with all kinds of creatures, characters, and even animals that don't exist anymore. Pierrot himself dresses and poses with his work, which often is one of the reasons his work goes viral.

We got an interview from Pierrot and asked what the goal of his street art is: "My primary goal is to make people laugh. For people to have fun and escape by looking at my paintings. I have been drawing since I was little, my cousin drew a lot, and I started vandal graffiti in 2001 with a school friend."

"The hardest part is not repeating myself over time. I always try to create something new. Sometimes animals come back in my paintings, but I'm usually trying to find something that best suits the wall. I need to paint without always doing the same; it's quite difficult over time."

We asked Pierrot what topics he chooses for his graffiti: "I don't have a particular subject or theme in mind. I don't convey a specific message through my art. I just try to keep it childish and fun."

"My style is mostly 3D and quite cartoon-like. It depends on the moment. However, 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."

Pierrot tells us how he chooses what to draw: "It also depends on the moment. I watch a movie or a cartoon and an idea comes to me. I also come up with ideas by looking at the wall I'm about to work on. The idea comes to me because the general shape of the wall is different (angles or wall superposition). I try to change the main subject of my art often. I don't want to get stuck doing the same thing over and over again."

I think Frosty's p**sed off.

"I started doing 3D designs 5 or 6 years ago, but I've been painting for 20 years. I still hope to paint even being old with a long white beard, young people will call me 'the old fool of the village.'"

Pierrot shares what inspires him to keep on creating: "My friends and traveling motivate me to always be more detailed and complicated. I challenge myself constantly. I am never very happy with the final result of my paintings, so I always try to do better every time, when possible."

We asked the artist if people ever get upset at his graffiti: "No, people mostly like it, or just don't care. I live in a village in the northeast of France. People do not look too much at graffiti and are not always fond of art."

Here is some advice from the artist for people who want to create art: "Always practice, don't watch social networks and media, especially at the beginning. Paint, paint, and paint again. Especially for fun, not for the money or to be known. It's a passion before it becomes a profession."

Pierrot tells us more about himself: "I paint almost every day. I live very simply. My pleasure above all is to paint, find abandoned places and later find ideas for paintings for them. I do a lot of sports, like breakdance. However, I do less and less because I am getting older, it starts hurting everywhere over time."

Pierrot has a message for our readers: "Keep your youthful soul alive, don't be too serious and rigid in life. Remember when you were 10 years old and the world seemed like magic. This is my life philosophy and above all, be curious about everything."

I love how all of the accessories (bucket, posters etc) add to the illusion that the painted wall is actually the ground.
