On December 19th, 2013 came out the fifth issue of our illustration magazine «Popper», and this time it was marked by not only an exhibition, but an auction of skateboards as well.
This issue’s theme is „Nightride” which speaks about the contrasts between day and night, paying special attention to night life. Drunken partygoers, graffiti writers, sleep deprived taxi drivers, suspicious cops, sickly beggars, reckless drag racers and quiet thieves — they all come out at night. The topic plays with our other life — night life. At night, everything changes, the shadows stretch long and black, the light becomes sneaky, and people savour what’s not allowed during the day.

To celebrate this issue’s release we held an exhibition at Kalnciema kvartāls. With the works of latvian and more than 20 foreign artists, exhibition was as diverse and unique as the countries each artist was from. Guest artists were from France, UK, Spain and Canada, just to name a few. Thanks to our sponsors, Dj’s, participating artists, great crowd and last, but not least- US, for making such a nice evening. Don’t worry if you missed this party, stay tuned for the next upcoming Popper events and see you there!
