Get to Know the Artists

Kehinde Wiley

Kehinde Wiley is one of the great portrait painters of our time. He engages the signs and visual rhetoric of the heroic, powerful, majestic and the sublime in his representation of diverse individuals throughout the world. He has enjoyed a steady stream of prestigious commissions and accolades – most recently, knighted by the government of France for his “major contribution to the arts.”

 

Wiley’s art is profound and beautiful – best known for his updates of classic Western European portraits, where he substitutes kings and queens with protagonists as diverse as the entire world. His distinctive, vibrant botanicals also invade these compositions with rays of light and color that speak to the present.

 

Platinum x Kehinde Wiley brings these botanicals directly onto the Platinum Card, wonderfully capturing the essence of Wiley’s profound energy and worldview.

Julie Mehretu

Julie Mehretu is regarded as one of the great artists of our (or any) time – situated alongside the likes of Jackson Pollack, Mark Rothko, Romare Bearden, and Picasso. Beyond the sheer aesthetic beauty, her body of work often speaks of migration, architecture, displacement, identity, and history. But it also advances concepts that are fundamental to art itself: line, color, composition, and notions of abstract beauty.

 

One thing is clear: the art of Julie Mehretu is a cosmos unto itself – unintelligible, yet full of meaning; replete with both contradiction and truth; challenging, yet also lyrical, effervescent, and arrestingly beautiful. Her visions are talismanic and profound, and she is living proof that art can indeed change the way we see the world.

 

Platinum x Julie Mehretu evokes the abstract modernity for which she is known and brings her signature style to the Platinum Card.
