Water Activated Street Art Comes To Life When It Rains

Sometimes, when having a bad day, it is nice to have a little pick me up.  It might be just a cup of coffee< or maybe just a beautiful flower blooming in the spring time. Maybe it is a simple text from a friend telling you to have a good day or possibly the sun shining outside after a cold winter.  It seems like when it rains outside you want to do nothing but cuddle in bed and sleep. Rain is known to cause some type of sadness in people, versus the sun shining bright outside. But one guy, Peregrine Church, a Seattle-based street artist, has decided to do something about that. He uses superhydrophobic coatings to create pieces of art and happiness on rainy days. ut don’t worry, the work he is doing is 100% legal and there is nothing toxic in it. Depending on how often the sidewalk is used, the art will last 4 months to a year.
