Delightful Colorful Murals Appear On Roads Only When It Rains

Hate the rain? What if it transformed a dull street into a river bursting with colorful fish?

Project Monsoon” was created for the annual monsoon season when it rains continuously, sometimes for as long as 3 weeks. They used special hydrochromatic paint, which is invisible until it gets wet.

“Inspired by South Korea’s culture of emphasizing the importance of the flow of rivers, the paintings utilize Korea’s topographical features that create a flow and puddle of rain water in every street to fill the streets with color and life,” the artists write.

With this clever idea, no one need ever get depressed when it rains ever again. We think this should be done everywhere.
