UD JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT
1983 Cosmetic Bag
Carry your stash in a makeup bag featuring Basquiat’s art. The 1983 Cosmetic Bag is one of three bags we created for our special-edition UD Jean-Michel Basquiat collection.
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. 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.
Made of coated canvas, our 1983 Cosmetic Bag features Basquiat’s iconic artwork and custom details like a colorful zipper with a crown pull. At 8 5⁄8" long x 6 ½" tall, this bag is sized just right for all of your everyday essentials and even includes an inside pocket for smaller items.
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.
