About Elliot Burns and Soho Editions

Elliot Burns

Elliot Burns is the president of Soho Editions, one of America’s leading publishers of fine art limited editions. Founded in 1986 in a loft at the corner of Broadway and Prince Street in New York City’s Soho Arts District, Soho Editions celebrated its 28th anniversary in 2014.

Having introduced Howard Behrens to print collectors in its founding year, Soho has gone on to publish over 500 editions by 20 artists from 6 different countries including Howard Behrens, Viktor Shvaiko, Sam Park, Thomas Stiltz, Malcolm Farley and Vladimir Volegov. Soho’s publications, posters and licensed images are sold in over 20 countries and have been represented by over one hundred and fifty galleries.

Soho pioneered the use of hand-enhanced prints on canvas, publishing the first ever hand-enhanced serigraph on canvas print, “Nafplio Light”, by Howard Behrens, in 1988. Soho has been an industry leader in the development and popularization of hybrid printing techniques. In addition to the introduction of enhanced prints on canvas, Soho has used hot-stamping, embossing (Lillian Shao), hand-painted hand-cast paper (Leslie Lew), and prints on silk.
