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.

Going by their logo of the unequal sign, the art collective Fauve was established in Paris, in 2010. Composed of actors, poets, visual artists, comedians, and musicians alike, this group tells stories through spoken-word and acting, with their own music as an accompaniment. This poster is powerful and poignant and refers to the collective's performance at Montreal's Club Soda in 2014. 

This silkscreen poster was hand-printed by the artist himself and is in excellent condition.
