DAMILOLA ODUSOTE turns heads with his intricate, illustrative style. He graduated from Camberwell College of Arts with a BA honours and works predominantly in graphic inks, sculpture and metallic paint. His art has been exhibited extensively in London and his clients include collectors based throughout Europe and America.
“’Time & Space’s landscape of sinking chess pieces challenges our perception of time and space in a gravity defying set. Inspired by the game’s fluidity and uncertainty, I used only the identifiable parts of the chess pieces to give a feeling that the rest of the set is in another dimension.
In collaboration with Debut Contemporary, Notting Hill.
Purling London Art Chess sets 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 30 artists to date, including Sophie Matisse, Inkie and Thierry Noir. 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. ”
