Rainworks are positive messages and art that appear when it rains. The purpose is to make people smile on rainy days. Rainworks are made by Peregrine Church who is often helped by co-conspirators Xack Fischer and Forest Tressider. Rainworks are created using hydrophobic coatings that stays invisible until it gets wet.
Each rainwork lasts about 4 months to a year, depending on the amount of foot traffic it has to endure. More abrasion means it will fade faster. A rainwork is the most vivid during its first couple of weeks, then slowly becomes more subtle. Rainworks arts are diverse, and range from artistic drawings to fun and motivational messages to a hop-scotch game that can only be played when it’s wet.
