Futurismo Ancestra – Sixe Paredes

The acclaimed Barcelona-born graffiti artist Sixe Paredes has collaborated with A(by)P to create his first major solo show in the UK, at Somerset House this month.

The tunnels underneath Somerset House play host to Paredes exuberant artworks, exhibiting large-scale tapestries, totems, ceramics and quipus (a system of knotted cords developed by the Incas to communicate and record important information, or otherwise known as ‘talking knots’). The collection blends tradition with modernity and is a tribute to Peruvian and Andean aesthetics, with free daily cultural events from food and film, to music and performance.

Entry is free but the exhibit is only on until 26th May, so hurry along and check it out!
