NEAR X ART DAO (NxA)
My name is Abdulkareem Oyeneye; I am a wood collage artist, music promoter, web3 enthusiast, community builder, and a council member of Young fresh creative and community Dao.
I am delighted that this idea is finally coming to light in this space after various brainstorming meetings and discussions. In the background, I have been testing various objectives, creating a well-defined structure, and engaging in extensive discussions with likeminded. I was given the opportunity to share this idea recently in the “Creative Dao meeting” where I got positive feedbacks and impressions.
With all the groundwork that has been done, I am pleased to announce the birth the NEAR X ART Dao.
This Dao entails very practical functions and a well-defined work layout of a “DAO”. This structure will have a good number of active communities/guilds in the Art/Nft segment of the Near eco system.
Mission: Empowering creatives and promoting sustainability of the ecosystem
Vision: Becoming the major channel for diverse art and creative minting in the ecosystem
We intend to create the following communities
Process Map of Near X Art DAO
1.Afrikan Art Collection
The main goal of this community is to empower Afrikan Artists with knowledge of the existence of web3, its attributes, and benefits. We aim to train artists on how to create unique afrikan art that would be unique to everyone; hence, making it the real “Non-Fungible Token”.
This community has already started its movement few weeks ago with support from mintbase dao. We had a live empowerment program in Lagos where we successfully trained and empowered numerous Afrikan Artist on how to use mintbase, how to open a near wallet, how to create Afrikan art, and how to use Astro dao, etc.
For this project, $20 dollars was also rewarded to each participant. Kindly check out the highlight of the event here. I intend to expand on this project through this guild to reach a diverse audience and numerous creatives.
Also check out the Afrikan Art Collection store
There is an on going art challenge I am currently managing, it fosters on the theme metaverse

Some of the NFTs minted in our store will be available in its physical form, to be delivered to the collectors/buyers in any part of the world.
This is one of the major goal of the Near x Art DAO. We aim to provide utility for the Nfts thus attributing more value to it and making it more attractive for collectors.
3.Wildlife/Animal Art Collection
This community will be centered on creating and curating art of different types and forms in relation to animals. These NFT project is aimed to support the pets and wildlife across the globe; 40% of the revenue generated from this project will be donated to animal care.
The aim of this community is to create photographs and capture some parts of the world with less inadequate infrastructures. This aspect of the segment is to bring awareness, so the world at large understands that there are areas that need attention. These photographs will be minted as an NFT and 70% of the funds from this project will be given back to those deprived communities to support the places showed in the NFT. 30% will go to the creators of this photos.
We intend to bring some of the events from the above communities to the metaverse via crypto voxel. This will shine light on our activities and be a form of accountability on these projects. I have pioneered this aspect by airing our last event on empowering “Afrikan Artists” on metaverse last Saturday, 26th of March 2022 with the help @gushlewis in setting up the cryptovoxel space.
Council members: @supercoolkay @larkim @Bimpsyy @gushlewis
@Larkim is an artist, a web 3 enthusiast and a community builder with so much influence in the ecosystem. He has onboarded quite a lot of people into the ecosystem like me. I have also witnessed his impact on communities like muti dao, Afrikanburn and NxM guild.
@Bimpsyy based in Canada with experience in auditing and quality assurance.
She will bring her skill set into the general overview of the projects, it’s lifecycle, compliance and would ensure that all aspect of the protects are carried out most especially in the Wildlife art segment.
@Gushlewis is a Brazilian artist, composer, producer and meta-architect. He has worked with Metaverse DAO, Spiritual DAO and currently working with Nomade Label DAO.
As each community under the Near x Art Dao starts its journey to achieving its goal, the council members will be updated with people with similar visions.
Thank you for taking the time to review my project and for the support in bringing this dream to life. I am glad to be a pioneer in the development of the ecosystem.
