Luxury Art Chess

Art Chess

Purling London luxury Art Chess are individually hand painted by specially commissioned British and international artists and no two sets are the same. From established figures to rising stars of the contemporary art scene, Purling has collaborated with 25 artists to date, including Sophie Matisse, Kate Brinkworth, Inkie and Olivia Pilling. Complete with a numbered certificate signed by the artist and our deluxe, Birds-eye maple boards; each hand-carved, triple-weighted Art Chess is a miniature sculptural masterpiece.

“When I look at our Art Chess sets, I see a contemporary painting over a three dimensional surface. I want to explore the pieces from every angle, look around them and hold them. As I play Art Chess I see a moving and evolving painting, with opposing colours and sides mixing and integrating. The game of chess is a creative art form in itself and for me, it is perfect to play it with a unique and beautiful set. ”

Simon Purkis, Founder and Director, Purling London
