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.

MEGATIVE is a collective from Brooklyn whose dub music is heavily influenced par punk and British reggae from the end of 1970s. Think Gorillaz meets The Clash, but with hip-hop rhythms and whirling sirens inspired by Massive Attack. Their sound is an homage to the music scenes in Kingston and London, but also speaks to the hectic rhythm of life in New York, with lyrics and rhythms that question society and politics. This silkscreen poster was hand-printed by the artist himself and is in excellent condition.
