Beatriz is an artist, a social anarchist, tech entrepreneur and the founder of DADA.nyc, the only visual conversation platform where people from all over the world speak to each other through drawings, creating collaborative art. Dada's community has created over 100K digital drawings on the platform that are ready to be traded as non fungible tokens.
Dada is using blockchain technology to create an alternative economy for artists in which art making is decoupled from art sale transactions, allowing artists to create and experiment freely while receiving a passive income for their contribution to the community.
Prior to DADA, Beatriz was the founder of Dancing Diablo, an Emmy-winning content studio with offices in New York and Caracas. She has directed over a hundred videos for some of the biggest brands in the world. Early in her career Beatriz illustrated for the New York Times and worked at Disney and MTV.
