Product Description
 
Purling London Art Chess X Darren MacPherson Magenta v Green

Purling London Art Chess are individually hand painted by specially commissioned British-based artists and no two sets are the same. From established figures to rising stars of the Contemporary Art scene, Purling has collaborated with 20 artists to date, including Kate Brinkworth, Inkie and Olivia Pilling. Complete with a numbered certificate signed by the artist, 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 and Director, Purling London

DARREN MACPHERSON produces vibrant figurative works which offer subtle complexity surrounding the human condition. Working in acrylic, spray paint, oil, and crayon, he creates works which demonstrate strong influences from traditional Indian art, Japan Manga, tattoo motifs, Expressionism, and urban architecture.

“I wanted to treat each piece uniquely and as a work of art in its own right. Translating my work down to such a small scale was a particular challenge but I focused on my usual painting process and let it lead the way until I was satisfied with the finished product. The layering of the lacquer was the final stage of the painting process and I dedicated a significant amount of time to create the kind of hard shine and depth that I had envisioned.”
