Street Art That Only Appears When It Rains
Most of us don’t really like rainy days, but Seattle-based artist Peregrine Church makes good use of the rain.
“We make rainworks to give people a reason to look forward to rainy days! It’s going to rain anyway. Why not do something fun with it?”, he says.
Peregrine uses a product called Always Dry (the Wood & Stone formula), a superhydrophobic coating that protects surfaces from water and other liquids. With the help of stencils he sprays his artworks onto sidewalks, it will last 4 months to a year depending on the foot traffic. His artworks slowly fade over time and are most vivid in the first couple weeks.
