Part of the UD Jean-Michel Basquiat collection, the Gallery Blush Palette features four versatile shades inspired by the work of this groundbreaking artist.
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.
Gallery Blush Palette is a four-pan face palette that holds two shades of blush, a bronzer and a highlighter based on Basquiat’s paintings. These versatile shades work on any skin tone, and our long-lasting Afterglow formula delivers 8 hours of wear.
Housed in a mini reproduction of Basquiat’s artwork, Gallery Blush Palette is wrapped all the way around with canvas, so the art printed on top comes to life. We designed the palette with a small cutout on the back for hanging so you can display it on your wall and create your own mini Basquiat gallery.
About the 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, 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 NYC. His iconic work is still exhibited all over the world.
