Hi Graffbase community

I’m Dedeukwu and as a versatile artist, I would like to present my idea to help grow the Graffbase community with my painter friend @Gbenga03 and @Azavitch ith my experience in the NEAR web3 ecosystem I’m hoping to serve for a few while as a council member while I initiate what I call “GRAFF ON THE WALL” which is planned to be a day irl event here in Lagos state with maximum of 10 graffiti artists will paint, discuss NEAR & Mintbase various potentials,understand their various $NEAR wallets potentials and need to protect it, explore ideas and mint their various illustrations in a small wooden wall that’ll be constructed one time to be used for next edition of the event or for any Graffbase community activities.

We will publicize this gathering online and irl using banner and E-flyer and also identify with every artist willing to join us in this experiment.

Hello @Dedeukwu, the Creatives DAO at the moment only supports DAO’s and GUILDS through monthly funding. In this case, I think that you need propose your project for some DAO that has budget to support you.
We have a meeting every Monday with the creative community where you can promote your project and try these partnerships. Join the group on telegram.


Yeah I’m pretty much aware of this fam, I tend to use the GRAFFBASE DAO for this project but didn’t see the tag in the categorized section pls help me with directions.



It’s ok man. I’ll tag here the council members of Graffiti DAO. @mwhyden and @ted.iv can you help here?


Hi heverton​:relaxed:,
We will still Write Our April Funding Proposal and Report One of this Days, just finalizing the Other Infos and we discuss few days ago​:relaxed::relaxed:

@ted.iv any questions on this side fam?

Hey @Gbenga03 ok, in the proposal above it says 20 cans at 18$ per can, which to me sounds like a lot from experience. For example, here in Lisbon I can get high quality montana spray cans for about 3 to 5 euro per can… Could you maybe link the shop where you would be purchasing the paint?

The acrylics will be used as a base layer or for the actual mural then?

Thanks :slight_smile:

also, just to note, I’m no longer council of graffiti dao, just assisting the first month of changeover and also fulfilling my role as a Creatives moderator. As @Ligaya linked above, the list of new council is posted there. Thanks!


@Dedeukwu another quick note on the proposal. Only the USD value is required, the NEAR foundation uses the NEAR value once the request has been passed and KYC received.

Some details on the location of where the event will be held would be great also.


Okay nice one, I’ll just remove the $NEAR value then.

This project is to take place at The C1 Studio DedeukwuShryne / Bruth Lounge situated at 10b Bashiru Olusesi avenue, Lekki-Epe Expressway Lagos state in the center of the city where they’ll be enough space for this 10 graffiti artists to explore.

We can be able to do 5 artists per day or 10 once to cut costs and make way for other proposals if that’s fine.

Thanks for the observation, the quote didn’t break it to details that was why I had to do the explanation earlier. We using emulsion pain as the base layer while acrylics is for the murals.
