Welcome to Art Under Glass. The goal of this project is to get my plexiglass art on walls outside of my own home. By backing this project, you have the opportunity to bring some really unique contemporary art into your home at prices that will never be seen outside of Kickstarter.
I use professional grade acrylic paint and 1/4" thick clear plexiglass. If you choose to pledge $250 or more, you will be thanked with an original piece of artwork - not a print, not a reproduction, not a poster. Real art on plexiglass that is pre-drilled in its four corners, making it ready to hang using the included stainless steel standoffs (drywall anchors also included). I mix a specific polymer into the paint to allow it to adhere to the plexiglass so you can be sure that your art will last.
Whether you are able to pledge $10 or $3500, I have some really special rewards for you. Please take a moment to review them all and pledge only what you are comfortable with. And if you are unable to pledge today, you can also back my project by simply spreading the word to your family and friends - anyone that you think will enjoy my art. I thank you in advance for your support!

Customizing Your Piece:
All black is not for everyone, I get it. If you'd like to customize your art piece by adding one or more colors (up to three) I can gladly do that. Please add $25 per color you'd like to add and I will send a survey to ask what your additional pledge was meant for and which color(s) you would like to add. Here are the options:
- Royal Blue
If you decide to receive a 4'x8' piece of art, I will send you a personalized video postcard thanking you for your pledge and showing your piece being created. If you're going with a smaller version of art (the 1'x2', the 2'x4' or the 3x6'), you can still receive a personalized video postcard of your own. Please just add $100 to your pledge. I will send out a survey to clarify what your additional pledge is meant for.
Installing your new art piece will be simple. See just how easy in this video!
Once your piece is completed, it needs two to three weeks to dry before it can be handled. This is because the paint needs time to fully adhere to the plexiglass and since these will be wrapped and shipped, I don't want to take any chances. When shipped, the art will come with a protective paper on one side that should be removed only during installation (unless you decide to purchase the piece from the video in which case it will arrive securely wrapped in plastic). All pieces will be wrapped, packed and shipped with the utmost care to protect your purchase. Unfortunately, I can only ship the items marked as "International backers welcome" overseas. The largest pieces (3'x6' 4'x8') can only be delivered to continental US backers because of their massive sizes.
$250 or more gets you real original art. If you want to add a color to the standard black, please add $25 to your pledge. Two colors, $50. Three colors, $75. If you want to add a video postcard to your art piece, please add $100. Domestic shipping costs are included in pledge amounts, international pledges are welcome but only for the smaller rewards and additional shipping is noted when required. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you so much in advance for all of your support!
I love that song, too. It's "Dancing at Sunset" by Karsh Kale.
I don't mind the trouble of sending overseas, it's just the cost that deterred me. If you're overseas and would still like a painting, I will subtract the cost of US shipping and add your int'l shipping estimate. If you'd like to take on the cost of shipping, I will gladly send you one of the larger art pieces.
