Seattle artist creates street art that’s only visible when it’s raining

Artist Peregrine Church has found a creative way to brighten up Seattle residents’ rainy days.

Seattle is almost as well-known as Ireland for its damp climate so Church has created street art that only appears when it's raining.

He uses a water-repellant coating to paint messages, games and illustrations on the footpaths of Seattle as part of a series entitled 'Rainworks'.

The coating is enviromentally-friendly and lasts anywhere from four months to a year.

Such a simple idea but one that is guaranteed to make you smile on a rainy day - and we definitely have enough of those over here.

If anyone's feeling inspired, you can buy the 'paint' here.
