Stocking Stuffer: Kehinde Wiley Playing Cards

Must read

December 22, 2022 | in Design

If you need a last minute gift idea, we recommend the Kehinde Wiley Playing Cards, featuring our Fall 2022 cover art to boot! There are two versions, the Red Sword and Grace, and as MoMA Design Store notes, “these poker-sized, linen-embossed decks are inspired by European art history and portrait traditions. Wiley is best known for his vibrant portrayals of contemporary African-Diasporic individuals that subvert the hierarchies and conventions of European and American portraiture. Wiley will donate net proceeds from the cards to support Black Rock, his artist in residence program in Dakar, Senegal.”

Each complete deck of 54 Kehinde Wiley Playing Cards measures 3.5h x 2.5w x 0.5″d and is sold separately.
