Street artist takes his water-activated art to the rainy sidewalks of Seattle

Rainy days can really put a damper on things. Like your mood. So one street artist decided he would make the residents of rainy Seattle smile, and install artworks that came alive when it rained.

Peregrine Church is the artist and he’s doing this all to ‘give people a reason to look forward to rainy days’. He uses non-toxic, environmentally safe and biodegradable coatings, which can last as long as a year, depending on pedestrian traffic. His messages include words of hope and wisdom, as well as the odd hop scotch drawn on the sidewalk.

And as to whether or not his work is legal. Well, this artist has done his homework. On his website he clearly states that what he’s doing is legal since his art is temporary, doesn’t harm property and doesn’t advertise anything.

Surely this would make any sun-loving beach goer adore rainy days.
