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.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre is an American psychadelic rock band formed in San Francisco in 1990 by frontman Anton Newcombe. The band has released seventeen albums and was the subject of 2004 documentary film "Dig!". This poster was created by Lépine as an homage to the band. The artist has overlaid an image of Brian Jones, a staircase and one of the band's concerts to create a psychedelic image that echoes the band's very music.
This silkscreen poster was hand-printed by the artist himself and is in excellent condition.
