KATE BRINKWORTH is a highly respected and internationally exhibiting British artist who graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University in 2000. She works predominantly in oils. Kate’s fascination with the themes of games, vice and the art of cinematography continues to provide great artistic stimulus.

“There is always that question of which influences life more, careful planning or chance and luck?  Chess is a game of pure strategy and skill, whereas a game played with dice cannot be planned. Such a game relies on chance, is heavy with risk and is unpredictable. The chess pieces are painted with designs based on the dice I use in my paintings, echoing this very aspect: luck and chance vs strategy.”

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. ”

Simon Purkis, Founder, Purling London
