The Story of Juxtacompositioning
As far as we know; this is the first and only time this exact concept has been laid down on canvas. It certainly comes as no surprise, knowing that it is one of Ron Suchiu’s creations. In this surreal piece, he’s depicted four super artists, each with their own canvases. Each artist is painting their interpretation of the background scenery, as influenced by Salvador Dali, in their own unique style that they’ve come to be world-renowned for.
From left to right, we have Andy Warhol, who has used stencils and silk-screening to duplicate scenes in his piece. Next, Norman Rockwell who is not known for surrealism, has re-imagined the scene with a light and lively touch by including a child running with a kite. Thirdly, Van Gogh has depicted the sky in his typical heavy brush-mark impressionism; many have commented they see Starry Night in the sky that Suchiu’s Van Gogh has illustrated. Last, but not least, in Jackson Pollock’s drip-fashion, he’s reproduced the scene before him in wild but intricate paint drizzles. Many know Pollock for infamously performing his drip paintings with the canvas on the ground. If you look at the bottom righthand corner of this piece, you’ll catch a touch of Suchiu’s humour in the remnants of Jackson’s creation on the desert ground to symbolize his method, followed by “J. Pollock was here.”
The painting is complex and the layers of time tested oil colors begin to wrap themselves in a story that folds into itself as you examine it deeper and deeper.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are limited edition prints?
Unlike an open edition print series that can be endlessly reproduced, in a limited edition print series, the artist restricts the total number of prints to be produced so it will maintain its collectability throughout the test of time, therefore increasing its monetary value. A limited edition print series is broken down again into three categories: press proofs, artist proofs and signed and numbered.
What types of limited edition prints are there?
When an artist does a limited edition print series of an original painting, the first few prints that come off the press are called press or printer proofs. The first few samples that are printed off are put to the side as press proofs, having been ‘proofed’ by the person running the press prior to the artist’s arrival. Usually, press proofs only make up about 1% of the entire print run.
During a print run, the artist and the person running the press will intermittently pull samples and set them aside for proofing. Traditionally, press proofs would be proofed by the press operator and artist proofs would be proofed by the artist. At Suchiu Art, artist proofs make up only about 10% of a given limited edition print series.
Signed & Numbered
The majority of a limited edition print run is designated to a series called signed and numbered. The signed and numbered limited edition print series contains the largest quantity of reproductions for that specific painting. Nonetheless, the total quantity of prints produced in a given signed and numbered limited edition print series will still be restricted in comparison to demand to maintain a sense of urgency for collectors and retain the print series overall value.
