“The mountains within each piece denote the individual journeys that must be made and together lead to a greater whole, larger picture and unseen outcome. The board is a swirling, ethereal, cloud-dwelling city, a place of transience that is yet to settle upon its final form. The castle in the title refers to the castling move, the defensive safeguarding of the king in a time of potential threat, transition and uncertainty.”

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. ”
