Diller Daniels is a next-generation portal to arts engagement, focused on preserving and forwarding the Icelandic ethos captured in modern and contemporary art. Established in 2021 by Eva Maria Daniels for her young son Henry Diller, the space is a bridge between her adoptive and native countries and seeks to champion the careers of Iceland’s most dynamic emerging and established artists and is committed to introducing their art to an international audience. Through exhibitions, dialogues, and outgrowths of the two, Diller Daniels seeks to enrich and extend an art experience by harnessing its immediate surroundings, and the reach afforded by technology.
Eva Maria Daniels of Eva Daniels Productions (EDP, founded 2010) is an independent film producer focused on developing original content with socially relevant themes. EDP's most recent producing credits include JOE BELL directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and starring Mark Wahlberg, Connie Britton, Reid Miller and Gary Sinise; END OF SENTENCE directed by Elfar Adalsteins and starring John Hawkes and Logan Lerman; HOLD THE DARK directed by Jeremy Saulnier and starring Alexander Skarsgard, Jeffrey Wright and Riley Keough; and THE DINNER, directed by Oren Moverman and starring Richard Gere, Steve Coogan, Laura Linney and Rebecca Hall. Eva is currently developing several films in partnership with long term collaborators, A24, and others.
While her tenure in film production extends backwards and forwards in time, so too does her dedication to the arts. The advent of Diller Daniels will be a notable shift in her focus, but one that benefits from her trajectory thus far.
Eva is originally from Iceland where she studied business and philosophy at the University of Iceland and completed an additional degree in film production from KBH Film & Fotoskole in Copenhagen in 2003. Before relocating to Switzerland, Eva spent the majority of her career living between London, New York and California.
