Mircea Suciu works with different materials such as acrylic, oil and often combines them with monoprint techniques. For a long time his works were based on images he found in newspapers, magazines and other media. The themes he choses are mainly socio-political and psychologically orientated. The artist has a particular interest in the way the individual appropriates the behaviour of the mass during manifestations and therefore loses his own identity. Recently elements, such as props, curtains, covered objects and people struggling with heavy entities, like big balloons have appeared in his new works.

For Mircea Suciu the process is at least equally important as the final image. He likes to work in series in order to exhaust the imagery and to transform them in a way that the viewer gets different perspectives on a certain topic. Since last year he started making his own photographs so that he can combine different realities and visuals in one work. Despite a complex and layered creation process the surface of each work has a unified quality. Suciu envisions works that are difficult to define in time and space. By using a staged process of creation, destruction and restoration, his surfaces seem to have suffered and give the impression of embodying an intense history. Painting is a loaded and heavy medium that Mircea Suciu wants to honour. This implicates a dialogue with the past but also with the future, because as an artist he searches for new areas in painting by pushing limits and possibilities and looking for a position of his own in a contemporary world filled with new media.

In 2014 a large drawing installation was on view at the Gwangju Biennial in South Korea, which consisted of charcoal drawings with monoprints. He also participated in the 4th Prague Biennial, 11th Istanbul Biennial and 16th Vilnius Painting Triennial. In 2017 several of his works were on view at the Timisoara biennial.

Work by Mircea Suciu has been on view in several group exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Bochum, Weserburg Museum in Bremen, Museum Beelden aan Zee in The Hague, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Espace Louis Vuitton in Paris, Fondation Francès in Senlis, Maison Particulière in Brussels, MODEM Center for Modern and Contemporary Art in Debrecen and Mucsarnok Kunsthalle in Budapest.
