Original chess art by a real chess artist

My name is Jen Hansen, chess artist and owner of Chess Art Designs

Let me go ahead and answer your first question: Yes I am a chess player, WIM, nowadays playing mostly on Lichess and ICC

About my paintings: Just like in chess, I let the inspiration guide me. Even before I started calling my creations for "art" I noticed some curious similarities between chess and abstract painting. Similarities that are most obvious at the Meta level, but also appear at the deeper and more subtle layers of the art.

Chess and Art: They both begin with a blank field of infinite possibilities for personal expression. As a chess player or a visual artist, you have some ideas about what you wanna do. But once you get going, your creation comes alive. You have no idea what's actually gonna happen. it takes you places, Sometimes you feel the flow and inspiration, you look at it and think "Not too shabby". Other times it gets sooo messy, in spite of all good intentions. And then again, you find this intriguing fragment - a tactic or a bold move - emerging out of nowhere, that gets to shine with a beauty of its own.

There is a hidden (or not so hidden) chess message in all my art for sale here on Etsy. Hopefully you find an art piece that resonates with the chess artist in you
