I have only photographed my 2 favourite chess sets from the new exhibition The Art of Chess so as not to spoil the surprises for those of you that are able to go and see it for yourself. Open from today at the Saatchi Gallery, these chess sets have been commissioned at various points over the last 10 years and brought together as a collection for the first time.
The first set is by Kusama Yayoi, the Japanese artist obsessed with spots. If you haven’t done this before, Google her name then comment below to let me know what you think when you see her picture. She has recently designed the incredibly eye-catching windows for Louis Vuitton so you will be able to see her work at any LV store, wherever you are in the world right now. The second set here is by Alastair Mackie, other featured artists include: Jake and Dinos Chapman, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, Gavin Turk and Rachel Whiteread. Definitely worth a look.
