UPB Holding in cooperation with the most acknowledged Latvian artists of Latvia has created a calendar for 2008 that has no equivalent. The main idea of the project is to support and spread the contemporary Latvian art.
The fact that there are conversations between art scientist Laima Slava and artists next to the art works illustrated with the photos by Jānis Deinats, Normunds Brasliņš and Armands Lācis makes this calendar unique.
Ilze Freimane, UPB Holding Vvice-president: „Our Company has established long term cooperation with the many artists. There is a UPB art gallery in Liepaja Liepāja that has already existed for more than three years and in which well acknowledged artists exhibit their work on a regular basis.
All the artists who are seen in the calendar have had their personal exhibitions in our gallery.
UPB has begun to create its own art work collection, to which new art works are added regularly.
All paintings that are included seen in the calendar are part of company’s collection.”
Calendar has been published by the publishing house” Neputns” in both - Latvian and English, as it is in limited edition it is not provided for commercial distribution.
The opening of the calendar in which all of the above mentioned artists and authors of the project were involved, took place on 12th of December 2007 in UPB Riga Representative Office.representation facilities.
