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

‘Wall Dogs’: The Real Mad Men of New York Advertising

News site Vocativ has created an eye-opening mini-documentary that takes a look at the “real Mad Men of New York advertising”.
The short video features “wall dogs”, a group of people who advertise the “old-fashioned way”, by hand-painting advertisements on the walls of NYC buildings.
Chained to walls by their safety harness, they risk life and limb to create large scale advertisements and posters that have a very human way of sending a message.
