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.
"Nina" is a Montreal film written and directed by Harima Elkhatabi about a sixteen-year-old girl fleeing her home, incapable of dealing with her new baby brother and the changing family dynamics. This film is one of Elkhatabi's first examples of fiction writing, as she initially studied the art of documentaries.
