Together, they have created three exquisite pieces of chessart known as the "Chess Story" triptych.

The Chess Story triptych is a contemporary chess art collection that merges the brilliance of chess with the artistic genius of Luka Brase. Each piece is magically crafted by a master himself, showcasing the intricate details and symbolic elements that make chess a truly captivating game. The fusion of art and chess in this triptych is a sight to behold, offering a unique perspective on the game's profound narrative.

From the colors of chess to the symbolic elements woven into the artwork, this fusion of art and chess is an absolute delight for both chess enthusiasts and art collectors.

The Chess Story triptych invites us to explore the depths of chess beyond the game itself. It invites us to ponder the strategic battles, the intellectual challenges, and the profound human emotions that are intertwined within each move. Luka Brase's artistic interpretation adds a new layer of meaning and invites us to see chess as more than just a game but as an intricate dance of strategy, creativity, and human connection.

Whether you are an international master or amateur chess player or someone who appreciates art that tells a chess story, the Chess Story triptych is sure to kidnap your imagination and leave you in the endless possibilities that arise when two creative worlds collide. The Story of King, The Story of Queen, and The Story of Family is there for you

Luka Brase on working with Opening Master: 

Dear Alexander,

Thank you for sharing this wonderful news. I am also excited to announce my collaboration with Opening Master, to create the "Chess Story" triptych. As a visual artist, it has been a true pleasure to merge the world of chess with my artistic life.

The Chess Story triptych is a contemporary chess art collection that captures the essence of the game. Through "The Story of King," "The Story of Queen," and "The Story of Family," I tried to showcase the details and symbolic elements that make chess such a global game. The fusion of art and chess in this collection offers my unique perspective of the game.

I am glad we can help children in need and with the sales also helping The Gift of Chess, a charity foundation which takes care of distribution of chess sets to disadvantaged communities. By acquiring a Chess Story piece, you not only bring home a my signed masterpiece but also contribute to a wonderful cause, helping young chess players worldwide.
