What makes Seoul, South Korea shine during the annual 3 week monsoon period? Well, this incredible and vibrant street mural that beautifully comes to life in the rain.
Prepare to be amazed.
Seoul, South Korea's three week monsoon season casts a dark shadow over the bustling city, but Patone's Project Monsoon provides a burst of energy amidst the gloom and doom.
Patone paired up with artists and designers, who painted the streets with hydrochromic paint, which changes from transparent to opaque when it gets wet.
The artists' mission was to fill the streets with color and life, emphasizing 'the importance of the flow of the rivers.'
Here's a closer look at the mural and the colorful creatures that exist.
The mural consists of fish, turtles and whales, that appear to be swimming with the river and its puddles.
The project won a Black Pencil and Yellow Pencil at the 2015 A and AD New Blood awards.
