WATCH THIS! Water Light Graffiti. It's a thing - a thing you'll love!

The incredible team at Digitalarti have given a whole new meaning to graffiti and street art. Take a look to see what they've been up to with a spritz of water.

As some of you may already know, here at Creative Bloq we love a bit of street art; whether it be murials, stencils, scultpures or Slinkachu's small people. What we never expected to see was the water graffiti. That's right, graffiti fonts created using a simple squirt of water and some nifty LEDs with beautiful results.

The project was created and crafted by the team at Digitalarti at the ArtLab studio. The 'Water Light Graffiti' surface is made out of thousands of LEDs illuminated by the contact of water. You can use anything from a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or complete a drawing.

The team at French based agency Digitalarti describe the Water Light Graffiti wall as: "an ephemeral message in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically within the city." That's what we love about street art here at Creative Bloq; it's designed to highlight the beauty of a city and to bring its citizens together in a unique and creative way.

The Water Light Graffiti is a project of Antonin Fourneau, who has a wide range of talent on show through his portfolio. It was engineered by Jordan McRae with the design structure crafted by Guillaume Stagnaro. The graffiti in the video was performed by Collectif Painthouse, with the assistant team of Clement Ducerf and of course, all the ArtLab volunteers.
