Life with Archie, Volume 1, #178, 1971

About

Artist Michael Suchta takes comic book covers from the Golden Age of comics and creates compelling 3D wall art. The process of painting each cover is complex, requiring several steps, and ending with a original hand painted multi-dimensional work of art. Each painting starts with the original comic book cover as a guide. Suchta then creates his own design which is then reverse painted on six or seven different panels of lucite. The panels are then assembled and placed in a shadow box frame (pictured). The layers give the work its 3D effect. While his process gives him the ability to paint another version, by design, each version is a original work requiring each step of each panel to be individually completed including the complete process of reverse painting.
