Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquait Makeup Collection

Hola Estrellitas!! I am super excited about this makeup collection from Urban Decay, the  Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquait Collection. I have been a fan of Basquiat since I learn about him in the early 90s, when I first moved to the United States.

Makeup is Art and this collaboration makes sense for Urban Decay, a company that is always challenging the status quo and uses color in nontraditional ways, just like Basquait.

If you are not familiar with the artist, this is what UD posted on their website about him: “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”.
