Sao Paulo's Graffiti Storm Drains

Street Art duo 6EMEIA started painting storm drains in the Barra Funda neighbourhood of Sao Paulo with an aim to transform everyday life by bringing a smile to people's faces. Storm drains are not exactly an attractive part of a street scene, so these designs bring a lighthearted, more attractive look to them. I really love these, I think that although there is still stigma surrounding graffiti, this kind of art does not impose in an ugly or displeasing way, instead it adds colour & humour to an otherwise bland & dull landscape.
