While NeverWet, the super hydrophobic spray that repels liquids, has been around on marketing blogs for a while, some street artists are taking advantage of the creative new technology to bring joy to rainy cities.

In Seattle, for example, Peregrine Church creates artwork using stencils and the super hydrophobic spray on dry pavement. While the art at first appears invisible, once it rains, the sidewalk comes to life.

For a city like Vancouver, where it rains for practically half the year, this type of street art would be a perfect addition to our sometimes bleak and wet streets. Here are some of our favourite rain-activated designs:
