Artist: Lepine, Sebastien
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.
Montreal native Alexandre Bernhari began his solo act in 2012, presenting an intentionally enigmatic persona as his artistic identity. A voice that is androgynous and a style described to be elegant and poetic, Bernhari's album Ile Jesus won the Indie-Rock Album of the Year at the GAMIQ (Gala Alternatif de la Musique Indépendante du Québec) in both 2015 and 2016. This poster was made for his October 2015 show at Montreal's Fairmount Theatre.
