Kehinde Wiley: Playing Cards (Blue Boy)

$30.00    Member Price: $27.00

This deck of cards features A Portrait of a Young Gentleman, (2021) by Kehinde Wiley, which was created as a contemporary response to Thomas Gainsborough's iconic Blue Boy portrait (1770).  This set of playing cards is inspired by the manner in which Wiley's painting reimagines Gainsborough's young, white subject as a Black, Senegalese surfer and replaces the original moody, wooded landscape with a vibrant, floral backdrop. 
  • 54 playing cards
  • Linen embossed finish
Net proceeds from your purchase supports Black Rock, Wiley's artist in residence program in Dakar, Sénégal.
