Senior Art Director
Raphael Lacoste was the Art Director at Ubisoft on such titles as Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed, winning a VES Award in February 2006 for his work on the "Two Thrones" cut scene from Prince of Persia. Wanting to challenge himself in the film industry, Raphael stepped away from the game industry to work as a Matte Painter and Senior Concept Artist on such feature films as: Terminator Salvation, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Death Race, and Repo Men. As of 2009, Raphael has returned to the video game industry, working as a Senior Art Director for Electronic Arts Montreal.

From his sketches to the finished images, the sense of wonder and hugeness is always extremely present, stimulating the viewer's imagination, wanting him to know more about each scene, exactly like in a captivating epic tale. A truly fabulous body of work!"- SPARTH
