Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquiat Makeup Collection

Your Beauty Gossip

Urban Decay announced the launch of its brand new makeup collection inspired by the works of the late American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The shades and textures featured in this limited edition collection are inspired by vivacious colors used in Basquiat’s artworks.

"We’ve been fans of Basquiat’s art since before the early days of UD; so when his estate approached us about a collaboration based on his artwork, we couldn’t wait to start creating. From the colors and shade names to the packaging, EVERYTHING in this collection evolved from Basquiat’s art. Like Urban Decay, Basquiat was an outsider who challenged the status quo and used color in nontraditional ways. From his informal graffiti work and the way he mixed mediums and colors to the way he spoke out against social injustice, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect fit for our brand"

The collection pays homage to the famous artist even with its imaginative packaging that features replicas of some of his most notable work. In addition, each of the palettes comes with a cutout on the back, so you can even hang them on your wall to create a personal Basquiat gallery!

Your Beauty Gossip

"Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat began drawing and painting at the age of four and never stopped. By the time he was in his teens, his graffiti was a fixture around lower Manhattan. After leaving home at 17, Basquiat began selling hand-painted postcards and T-shirts. At 20, he landed his first public exhibition. A pioneer of the neo-expressionist movement, he quickly rose to fame on the '80s art scene in NYC, where he ran with the likes of Andy Warhol, David Bowie and Debbie Harry. His iconic work is still exhibited all over the world"
