Street Art That Only Appears When It Rains

“It’s going to rain anyway. Why not do something fun with it?”

 

This simple thought by Peregrine Church has led to “rainworks”, street art that only appears when it rains. The Seattle-based artist uses a product called Always Dry (the Wood & Stone formula), a superhydrophobic coating that protects surfaces from water and other liquids.

Church uses stencils to spray his artworks onto sidewalks and the pieces are temporary, lasting 4 months to a year depending on foot traffic and abrasion. The messages and artworks slowly fade over time and are most vivid in the first couple weeks.

You can find a list of all of the rainwork locations in Seattle on this interactive google map. For more, be sure to check out Rainworks at the links below.
