Street Art is the most vital emerging art form of the past 30+ years. It brings expression, politics, visual imagery, humor, and more into public spaces. It's a growing phenomenon worldwide, and the artists featured here are at the epicenter of it. And we want to bring that art to T-Shirts, so that you can wear the art that you love.
In a bit over a year and a half Maximillian Gallery has made an indisputable impact on the Street Art scene with our gallery located at the Sunset Marquis Hotel. We were recently awarded the prestigious "Best Of Award" from the LA Weekly for "Best Street Art". We were featured on NBC National Nightly News with Brian Williams and on numerous blogs. Our gallery and artists were selected to show at the prestigious and exclusive Scope Art Fair during Art Basel in Miami, and we recently won a prestigious award from the West Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce.
LIMITED EDITION ART T-SHIRTS
Each limited edition T-Shirt is made especially for you when you order it and comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity in your name (or the name you specify).
We thought that the amazing original art these artists are making would look awesome on high quality limited edition art T-Shirts and that this would resonate with collectors and fans, and it has, with artists and fans of the art asking us to start producing and selling these T-Shirts. To get them out to the world quickly, we've decided to launch them here on Kickstarter and this will be the first place these limited edition art T-Shirts are available. The T-Shirts will be $35 each following the kickstarter campaign so get yours now at reduced rates through the great pledge and rewards we have on Kickstarter, and remember, they make great Holiday gifts and each one is made just for you and comes with a personalized Certificate Of Authenticity from the gallery!
We are asking for your help to help us take these street artists to a new level. The idea is to quickly ramp-up production and distribution of limited edition T-Shirts in order to bring this art to the people who love it!
We are privileged to be working with a world-class group of the hottest emerging street artists to launch our limited edition Street Art T-Shirts. These are the artists on the buildings, the blogs, in the magazines and in the gallery, whose art is sought after, being collected and already going into important collections worldwide.

Risks and challenges
We are working with a top t-shirt printing company to print these high quality 100% cotton t-shirts in the USA. Some of the challenges would include getting all the art together from the artists but that has been done already and all the art is set to go to print. Other potential risks would be the t-shirts we're selecting not being available from the manufacturer for some reason (sold out, discontinued, etc.) but there are many high quality t-shirt suppliers we've identified so we could get the t-shirts from another source, so there is no risk there, another risk could be the printing company we've selected going out of business, but there are quite a few major fabric printing companies we've looked at so if that were to happen we would switch to another top fabric printer, so there is no risk there either, and finally, the amount of money being raised if the project is successfully funded is enough to cover the cost of purchasing and printing each t-shirt selected as a pledge reward so there is no risk in this area based on any monetary matters. Additionally, because of my background launching successful consumer products over the years, my award-wining art gallery, and my deeply caring about our amazing artists and clients, there is no risk that we won't produce and deliver the t-shirts to everyone who pledges and gets t-shirts as rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
