The Phoeron is the moniker of Canadian underground artist Colin J.E. Lupton. He is the founder and mastermind behind the evolving spiritual/philosophical system Phoeronism. He is an author of lyrics, poetry, mythology, short fiction, and occult non-fiction; a painter, photographer and visual artist; and a musician.
"the Phoeron" came to be in the fall of 2002 while Colin J.E. Lupton was living in a shelter for homeless youth in downtown Toronto. It was born out of his life-long interest in the Occult, and a very personal contempt for organized religion.
