Urban Decay Jean Michel Basquiat Tutorial

I was so excited to receive my amazing Urban Decay palette with the brand new Basquiat  “Tenat” eye shadow palette. I loved doing this makeup artistic tutortial and hope you enjoy it too.

  The artist Basquiat really inspired me  when I was attending THE ACARDEMY ART  UNIVERSITY in San Francisco. From the  New York grafitti he did as art, to promoting and working in galleries, and of course his relationship with Andy Warhol.

 

 

Jean Michel Basquiat first achieved  fans as part of “Samo,” which was a grafitti  duo who wrote enigmatic  workers of the lower east side of Manhattan. 

By the 1970’s  Basquiat was exhibited with his  neo/expressionist paintings in galleries and musuems.

 

 

He appropriated poetry, drawings, abstract painting and more into his work.

They made a film called, Basquiat in 1996 which includes Jeffrey Wright who played the main character, David Bowie as Andy Warhol, Gary Oldman, Benicio del Toro, and more popular characters, including a  Courtney Love cameo. It’s a fantastic film to see this artist’s journey and I definitely recommend it if you haven’t see it yet.

Getting Ready for Vegas

  Here’s a little video I just did getting ready and excited for my trip to Las Vegas in a few days. I always love going to Vegas but this trip I’m super excited to go on so I can get some new awesome ink from my pal Dirk Vermin. Been planning on doing this for awhile and so happy I have time this week to do it. I’ll definitely be taking a lot of photos and vids during the trip but want to videotape a little prequel.
