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.
Pouzza is an annual punk music festival that takes place in Montreal over a three-day period. Lépine created this poster for the 2016 edition of the festival, during which over 150 artists performed within walking distance of each in downtown Montreal. The festival takes its name from the blending of "poutine" and "pizza", creating the word Pouzza.
This silkscreen poster was hand-printed by the artist himself and is in excellent condition.
