Checkmate – Signed by Sting


“Chess…how did you know about my love for chess?” – Sting on Suchiu’s Checkmate. 

Suchiu’s Checkmate portrays Britain’s iconic superstar, singer-songwriter Sting through a lens only mega fans have glanced through. Beyond the creation of his many classic hit songs, Sting is an avid environmentalist and master chess player. Suchiu empathetically fuses the two hidden worlds of the celebrity figure in an unruly war of the greed of man vs the unquestionable power of nature. In this surreal image, the battle plays out on the black-and-white tiles of a game of chess. 

In the VIP dressing room before getting ready for showtime, Sting invited Suchiu with his print series backstage and hand-signed every limited edition Checkmate print. Upon first view of the original oil painting, he enthusiastically remarked “Wow” at the quality, accuracy, and depth of personality Suchiu captures with his brush. 

Checkmate demands center stage of every Sting or The Police fan’s home Hall of Fame, with limited edition prints having been found in more than 20 countries, on the set of Saturday Night Live, in Time Magazine, and even the private collection of Sting, hung directly above his chessboard in his personal music studio and gaming room.
