An Ode to Basquiat

If you tuned into the news last week, you may have heard the latest news circulating in the art world. Amongst a surge of popularity and notoriety, a painting by the late artist, Jean-Michael Basquiat was sold at auction for a record 110.5 million dollars. With all the buzz surrounding the man and his work, it seems the next natural step would be for the estate to branch out into other artistic communities, including the world of cosmetics. Joining forces with high-end makeup line, Urban Decay, the Jean-Michel Basquiat collection pays homage to the painter with vibrant colors and prints. The collection is available from Urban Decay, Sephora and Ulta.
