Colorful Murals Appear On Roads Only When It’s Raining

A group of designers from South Korea found a way to fight those gloomy days when it just wouldn’t stop raining. Together with Pantone they brought back the colours to Seoul by creating huge vibrant paintings on the streets which appear when it’s raining.

Their project is titled “Project Monsoon” and, as the name suggests, was created for the annual monsoon season when it rains for as long as 3 weeks. The artists  used special hydrochromatic paint, which stays 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 about their project. So, get a ticket to Seoul and grab an umbrella, because rainy days are nowhere near depressing there!

The images below were released as the teaser of the project and also “to give people something to look forward to this year’s monsoon season.”

Great idea - but these images are clearly digital - I know they said they're just a "teaser," but the pedestrians are in the exact same position in both the "before" and "after" shots... so clearly not real. it would be nice to have seen the real thing, even if it was just one small path/road.

It's because these are just concept photos. Like what they are planning the things to look like and they are probably working on them right now.
