American Express partnered with two artists to give its Platinum Card a new aesthetic. Julie Mehretu and Kehinde Wiley used diverse approaches to add style and flair. For cardholders new to American Express' Platinum Card, one or both designs may be selected -- existing cardholders may switch at some point, though no exact timetable has been provided by American Express for doing this.
American Express recently unveiled two new cards as part of its Platinum Card's Art x Platinum artistic collaborations, designed to inspire its cardmembers each day. American Express pledged $1 million toward supporting The Studio Museum in Harlem continue as a hub for artists of African descent both domestically and internationally.
The Platinum Card is an industry-leading premium travel credit card. It provides an attractive welcome bonus, 5x earnings on airfare, hotels and car rentals as well as elite status with Marriott Bonvoy, Hilton Honors and Avis Preferred; in addition to access to Amex's Global Lounge Collection of over 1400 airport lounges around the world. However, these perks tend to attract only wealthy and frequent flyer types with tastes such as working out at Equinox or shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue; many also opt for this card in order to skip airline club queues
