Stuck for something to do this bank holiday? If a trek round the Incas is off the cards this year, why not pop to Somerset House for a mesmerising underground tour of Peruvian and Andean art courtesy of Barcelona-born graffiti artist Sixe Paredes. Inspired by traditional folk art, towering tapestries vie for attention with giant totems, whimsical ceramics, knitted masks and “talking” knots. In a surreal clash of past and future, bold colours and dazzling geometric designs entrance and entice you to a land far removed from the daily grind.
