Urban Decay To Release An NYC Graffiti-Inspired Collaboration

Described as a makeup brand that promotes beauty with an edge, every makeup savvy person would be familiar with the brand’s mega-popular Naked Palettes that are worth every single penny. Now, the bold brand is in the midst of releasing an entire collaboration with the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat in typical Urban Decay manner: Limited in quantity and grandiose in every way.

There will be 12 special edition products ranging from eye shadows to lipsticks packaged in Basquiat’s artwork of informal graffiti and unorthodox usage of colours. In each of them, you may spot the artist’s signature crown logo, a symbol of Basquiat’s ambitions. Packed with tons of bright pigments for those who aren’t afraid to express themselves, Urban Decay resonated with the revolutionary artist’s non-conformist ways and outspokenness about social injustice. Basquiat – who never stopped making art since the age of four – is a pioneer of the neo-expressionist movement. He reached his peak during the ’80s in the New York City art scene and the world never stopped looking until his demise.
