Sueme’s work has been acquired by several corporate clients and collections including the City of Vancouver, Vancouver Parks Board, Edmonton Arts Council, Whistler Arts Council, HCMA Architecture, Nike Canada, Lululemon Athletica, The Civic Hotel, The Astoria Hotel, The Waldorf Hotel, among others. In 2016, Sueme created a mural with BAF at 150 E Cordova in Vancouver “to capture the energy and colourful design from graffiti and street art and convey it in a modern and sophisticated manner” (Sueme on his InGastown mural).
Glass Building is a part of Sueme's series Building Buildings. Building Buildings is an impression of city dwelling – how we construct, refine, nest, and live in spaces. The familiar escape from the city into the idealistic beauty of nature is reversed, where the artist turns inwards to draw inspiration from the details of everyday surroundings. The two-dimensionality of painting is challenged by releasing flatness and shifting towards volume and texture. Architectural motifs are mirrored through compositional forms, grids, and objects, mobilized by the materiality of paint. Glass Building is a unique work.
