“I am an avid chess player, so it was an easy “yes” for me to participate in this project. 

Over the mushroom years I’ve developed various forms of these mushrooms including the Warhol referenced screen-print-style mushroom, which you can see in the squares of the chess board. 

I believe in life-long learning. Our minds are the only barriers to endless possibilities and ideas. Hence my logo, EXPAND YOUR MIND® .

I am a great fan of the ideas of Richard Feynman in seeing the world from a different point of view. But, my greatest influence to date is probably Charlie Munger, including his; 25 standard causes of human misjudgement.

EXPAND YOUR MIND® was inspired by his ideas on developing a latticework of Mental Models. 

Go check it out. Expand your mind…

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
