Hernan Lopez is the Co-Founder and Chairperson of Danvas. Danvas is bringing digital art into the real world through an elegant, museum-worthy display. The Company’s  first digital display, the Series G, debuted at the 2022 New York Armory Show. Danvas’ luxury displays are designed to bring digital artwork to life in the way the artist envisioned. By displaying and reinforcing the authenticity of their work, Danvas empowers artists to grow their art practice and gain exposure to a larger audience, and empower collectors to acquire more digital and NFT art.
