Seattle, a city that is known for its rain, is now a place that is famous for water-activated street art or “Rainworks.” What’s special about this type of art is that it remains invisible to the naked eye until it gets wet. Peregrine Church, who is the genius behind this concept, uses stencils and superhydrophobic coating to put up familiar games like hopscotch or positive messages on the ground.
The coating is non-toxic, environmentally safe and biodegradable
His pieces may last between 4 months and a year
His works are diverse, ranging from artistic drawings and messages to a hop-scotch game
His artwork is also completely legal in Seattle because they don’t harm property, and are not a form of advertising
Now there is something to look forward to on rainy days too!
