Sébastien Lépine is a multi-media artist, designer, and artistic director based in Montreal. His creative pursuits span different mediums including poster art, album artwork, movie posters, video projections for live shows, and music video clips. He has been working as an independent artist since graduating from the graphic design program at Université du Quebec à Montreal in 2000.

Lépine’s poster art is characterized by the use of a technique evocative of photomontage: he overlays images and text, creating a striking interplay of transparencies and negative space. A constant stream of music fuels his creative imagination which translates into the vibrant energy found in his poster art.

Youth Lagoon was the musical project of Trevor Powers, who combined experimental and psychedelic music into a new hypnotic-sounding genre. Active only for six years, Powers discontinued Youth Lagoon in 2016 claiming "I've reached the top of a mountain, only to then be able to see a much larger one I want to ascend". This poster is from the tour for the first of only three albums.

This silkscreen poster was hand-printed by the artist himself and is in excellent condition.
