6emeia brings artists together for a common goal to spread creativity around city streets.

Artists Leonardo Delafuente and Anderson Augusto took on the task of livening up San Paulo storage drains and manhole covers. The two creative minds came up with idea of painting cartoon characters on the face of drains accompanied by graffiti drawings to make comical commentaries. Delafuente and Augusto have turned ordinary landscapes into wonderful art pieces. The pieces are quirky and fun-loving. Cute renditions include storage drains with animals illustrated on them like a bunny eating a carrot and a blue mouse eating a piece of cheese. Another amusing work is the manhole cover that has been altered to appear like the face of a watch.
