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.

Emblematic of Montreal's local indie rock scene, Suuns was formed in 2007 by vocalist and guitarist Ben Shemie and guitarist and bassist Joe Yarmush. Drummer Liam O'Neill and bassist/keyboardist Max Henry round-out the band's line-up. The group has released four critically-acclaimed records since 2010 and their 2012 album Images du Futur was nominated for a Polaris Prize.

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