Rainworks: Secret Street Art in Seattle

Seattle is notorious for its endless rain. But one local artist is trying to add a silver lining: cheeky graffiti that can only be seen on a rainy day.

The secret to artist Peregrine Church’s Rainorks project is a clear, superhydrophobic “paint”. Stenciled onto sidewalks and streets, it repels water, preventing the concrete from darkening in the rain.

It almost makes us wish for a rainy day!
