Chess is an abstract surrealism sketch by Kartikey Sharma. As you may notice in the sketch that a lot of shapes have been used to create a composition. This sketch is particularly very close to the artist because of the layers of elements that he could create in different dimensions. On being asked about it, he said, “This is a story of me walking through the sketch if we can imagine this sketch to be a massive structure. Chess is a task to go from one corner to another and would require an immense amount of strategizing. This is how I always imagine my sketches as if they were huge structures that I could walk through. This sketch was drawn at a very vulnerable time of my life.”

About the Artist

Kartikey Sharma is an artist and an art entrepreneur. He has been painting professionally since 2013 and specializes in painting large-scale murals or walls as well as creating things that do not exist. He is a huge admirer of surrealism which might have stemmed from the fact that every now and then, he is in a situation where he has to pull something impossible to get out of it. Hence, he has always tried to draw and paint things that do not exist and are rather impossible to create.

In his career, he has created over 200 murals, over 100 paintings, and countless sketches taking the total tally over 1000. His work has been used commercially by Fashion Brands such as Burger Bae and has garnered great admiration from consumers. He has been covered by almost all the media houses in India (and a few International) at some point or the other. He feels that despite all the odds, all the years in the hospital due to Lymphoma and broken hips, he has had a fairly successful career so far. He is a TEDx Speaker and continues to sketch even on the bed. He believes the best thing happening to him at the moment is that he is alive and he can make the best of it.
