Production and distribution of Gnarly Decks while funding and onboarding skateboarding institutions.
I'm Will Dias, based in Brazil - São Paulo and responsible for Prop 29 ideation and execution.
I've been skateboarding for 27 years. I breath skateboarding from a performance art format through video art.
I'm a self-taught artist, my relationship with skateboarding goes beyond tricks, I like to subvert the things that exists, like the noggle decks I've developed: a skateboard deck with the gnars logo, or the bodyboards and make it slide on hot asphalt, or even build a Gnars street spot in the heart of greater São Paulo.
Using objects outside the skateboard, such as bodyboard
It brings me immense pleasure to be part of the vibrant artistic community that is Gnars DAO. Throughout our prior collaboration, I've forged a strong bond with the community, I'm looking forward to engage even further and bring my artistic ideas to life. Crafting pieces that authentically embody my vision alongside Gnars has been a source of satisfaction.
"I'm excited to continue crafting and cultivating unconventional projects and concepts that transcend the ordinary" - Will Dias
Thanks to Gnars I was able to hold an event in which we celebrated with the Uncharted Waves Premier video - for the "NounGnarversary" event. The event was fully DIY and also brought a skateboarding obstacle called "Possibilities" for the community.
I want to be a DAO spearhead advocating on Gnars behalf and ensure the Organisation goals. Since we are all aligned to Million Shredders On chain I want to distribute 100 exclusive Gnars Skateboard Decks among new community members, tagged with QR codes that will lead to an Onboarding process into Gnars DAO.
I want to support Mera, SoMa, Bless with money and boards ( functional mkt material). The idea is start from the base skateboard school to SoMa and Bless partnership, both grass roots Skate Shops that goes beyond producing art and content. They should be managed personally by me and my trusted partners from the mentioned projects.
This proposal, if passed, would fund 100 Skateboard DECKS and its art creations (though prophouse curation) that would be given to the institutions along with the sum of 500 USD donation for each one.
In addition to the skateboard decks and donations this proposal compensates Will Dias with 2 ETH (equivalent in USDC) + 3 Gnars NFTs, for the proposal execution, communication with partners and onboarding, also in recognition and support for Wills efforts as a Gnars member. It also ensures that Will will be able to dedicate himself to Gnars during this proposal execution time.
