NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 8, 2022–
Danvas, the first-ever luxury display for digital art collectors, is thrilled to unveil its first G-Series display and announce its availability for pre-order during The Armory Show 2022. Co-founded by Jeanne Anderson, formerly from Saatchi Art, and Hernan Lopez, formerly of Wondery, Danvas’ groundbreaking new G-Series design will accelerate global appreciation for digital artists and their work by validating artwork ownership through an authentication indicator NFT and allowing a buyer’s entire collection to be displayed in a truly exceptional next-generation display.
“Our new Danvas Series G display represents a watershed moment in the validation of digital and NFT art. New art movements have often had a history of misunderstanding, and digital art is no different. We are currently experiencing a new renaissance in NFT and digital art, and at Danvas we believe that the remarkable works of art created today deserve to be shown and shared in an extraordinary display. says Danvas co-founder and CEO Jeanne Anderson. “At the Armory Show this year, the art world will see Danvas’ first sleek digital display designed for today’s modern digital art movement.”
To celebrate, Sofia Garcia, generative art collector and Miami-based advisor, hosted a special Danvas launch exhibit at this year’s Armory Show titled The new digital art experience.

Featured artists include: Minne Atairu, Luke F. Conroy, Luna Ikuta, Zach Lieberman, Helena Sarin, Seneca and Jason Ting.
Created in partnership with award-winning industrial design firm Ammunition Group, the same studio responsible for Beats by Dre, Square and Savant, the Danvas First Edition G-Series display features a stunning floating bezel with an iconic, sleek curved channel design.

The displays are available in maple wood in three finishes: white, black and natural, and in square format (4′ x 4′), or portrait and landscape (3′ x 4′).
Most notably, Danvas’ signature feature is an authentication indicator that, when connected to the owner’s NFT wallet, validates genuine ownership of an NFT artwork and illuminates an elegant blue light below the screen. , evoking a sense of inspiration and appreciation similar to that many viewers experience when viewing a valuable masterpiece in person.
