What it is: A special-edition collection that’s inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s iconic artwork.
What it does: 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 to 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 Urban Decay.
What else you need to know: 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, he began selling hand-painted postcards and T-shirts. At 20, he landed his first public exhibition and quickly rose to fame on the ’80s art scene in New York City. His iconic work is still exhibited all over the world.
Urban Decay is beauty with an edge. It is feminine, dangerous, and fun...appealing to anyone who relishes her individuality and dares to express it. Known for their daring shade names and innovative products, Urban Decay carries one of the widest selections of color at Sephora—a main reason their brand is so much fun!
