Anderson Augusto and 

Leonardo Delafuente

Anderson Augusto and Leonardo Delafuente are the two artist that created and developed the 6emeia project. The idea was born in July 2006 when the two man were making some pictures to colour the street called Rua do Bosque and by chance they staretd to picture some manhole covers. The duo live in the Barra Funda neighborhood of São Paulo where they began the project with the purpose of changing and transforming daily life. They think that by looking with care at the most forgotten and indifferent objects, one can take in art in a new way. They say “The painted storm drains  are like colorful drops falling into ash-colored grigio cenere canvass”.
