Colorful Paintings That Only Appear On Roads When It’s Raining

Colorful Paintings That Only Appear On Roads When It's Raining

Seoul, Korea is a colorful city, but during the monsoon season, when it rains for as long as 3 weeks, Seoul’s colors disappear.

A group of designers from South Korea teamed up with PANTONE to launch a street art project titled ‘Project Monsoon’ and make the streets of Seoul colorful again.

They painted the streets with hydrochromic paint – a special formula which changes from transparent to opaque when 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.
