AMEX Unveils Two Subtle Artistic Takes On The World’s Most Exclusive Credit Card

Aug 18, 2021

Between the $10,000 activation fee and the invitation-only holdership, it’s not for nothing that the American Express Centurion is considered to be the most exclusive credit card in the world. Admittedly, however, the black-on-black aesthetic isn’t for everyone, so this year’s version gets a pair of decidedly artistic updates.

They come in the form of the Rem Koolhaas and the Kehinde Wiley ‘Art Cards,’ with the former bearing the silkscreen drawings of the unfinished 1982 Boompjes project and the latter a series of subtle botanical designs. Koolhaas, an architect by trade, is the founder of the OMA Design Group, a Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, and a teacher to notable greats like Zaha Hadid. Wiley, too, is an incredibly distinguished artist, having pained President Obama’s official portrait and built a canon in celebration of African-American women. As with past Centurion cards, the perks are top-dollar, including exclusive experiences, an on-call personal concierge, and a wearable Prada wristband for cardless payments.
