Seattle artist’s works come to life when it rains

Glad to see this guy is still active. I featured him awhile ago on this blog, and I was worried that businesses might have a problem with some guy marking up their sidewalks, but if anything I would argue it provides a nice surprise for people passing by your business location, making it more memorable.

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.
