PURLING LONDON ART CHESS sets have been exhibited at Christie’s, Saatchi Gallery and the World Chess Hall of Fame. Many of these 1 of 1, hand-painted works have been the choice of royalty, renowned interior designers, art collectors and chess Grandmasters. Purling has collaborated with over thirty artists, including Sophie Matisse, Mr. Doodle and Thierry Noir. Every Art Chess set is hand-finished in London, England and can be made bespoke to your wishes.

DARREN JOHN

Darren John’s primary concern as an artist is the value of creative imagination. His mission is to make tangible a sense of unchained creative freedom. His works are not paintings of places or events, rather the canvas operates as a window into the mind of the painter.

John has produced a chess set following two works from his ‘Parallax 2.0’ series. This particular piece features a composition made from a close crop from a previous painting, allowing for perfect harmony between the artwork’s forms and the set’s function. The work has been applied using grey and gold in colour with sea sponge and brush, and is consciously finished with a combination of both sharp and textural edges.

A unique new Purling bracket enables this chess board to hang on the wall as a painting for display and storage and ‘float’ above the table when in play.
