A mushirk is a person that is committing shirk.

http://www.dictionaryofspiritualterms.com/public/Glossaries/terms.aspx?ID=212

mushrik (pl. mushrikun)


Short Description: A polytheist; literally, "one who falsely associates (something) with God,"

Long Description: A polytheist; literally, "one who falsely associates (something) with God," considering it to be likewise divine. It is most often used in the Qur’ān to refer to the Meccans and other Arabs who refused to accept the monotheistic vision of Islam.


from:
http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Mushrik

One commits shirk by associating some lesser being with Allah. This sin is committed if you imagine that there is some lesser spirit than Allah who is also worthy of worship or veneration, or to whom you can pray to intercede with you rather than taking your case to Allah Himself. This sin is also committed if you imagine that Allah is associated with some artifact here on earth, or that some such object is worthy of worship or veneration.
