Everyday people walk on the streets. There are so many street elements that many people taking for granted, for example manhole, storm drains, light posts, and more that form the street. They are something that people won’t care about but for street artists group 6emeia, it is something special for them. They decided to blend them with art and redefine their role in street.
6emeia consists of two members – Anderson Augusto and Leonardo Delafuente who lives in São Paulo, a city without commercial ads. The aim of 6emeia is to modify the means within which we all live, and proposing a new way to view things by reflecting upon themes generated through creative and unusual works. Normally their street art works can be found on the storm drains and manholes. For example, putting a character on the storm drains and the drain entrance become the mouth of the character, and using the natural shapes of the manhole and make it into food.
6emeia artworks are truly amazing and having a sense of humor too. I think two of them are really creative and unusual, I can’t even think of blending such street elements into art and giving them life and new meaning. The works are cute and fun, I think everyone will like them at first sight. Below are some of their works, for more works you can visit 6emeia’s homepage.
