Conceptual artist Philippe Gaulier has given us permission to showcase some of the outstanding art that he has created over the years.
After working a few years in advertising, illustration, and video games, Philippe crossed the pond to London, to work in the film industry. There he had senior roles in various major VFX facilities’ Art Departments such as Double Negative, MPC and Method UK.
He recently moved to Los Angeles as Senior Art Director for Method Studios. Philippe has worked on film projects such as Iron Man 2 and 3, Thor: The Dark World, Jupiter Ascending, and Avengers: The Age of Ultron. Gaulier’s credits also include Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Max: Fury Road, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II and more.
Concept for “Firefist”. The shot in the movie ended up being very similar to this concept.
The great climb of the Coral planet
Concept for a film pitch from a while ago… Great fun working on this and the other concepts I did for that project though it didn’t get made at the end.
Man of Steel
Man of Steel concepts for the world engines sequence.
One of the concepts that was part of a series describing the journey from outer space down to the planet Orous surface.
Some of the concepts I created for the Quake Champions trailer (2016). It was very fun doing these as I remember spending countless hours playing Quake III during my video games years when I used to live in Paris.
Snow White And The Huntsman
Here are some of the dark forest concepts and sketches I created for “Snow White And The Huntsman” movie.
Coordinates Unknown: Mausoleum
Concepts for a personal project with my good friend Olivier Pron
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol2
GOTG Vol 2 concept art for Yondu’s “space Salute”
Guardians Of The Galaxy concept art created for Ego’s planet.
Mad Max: Fury Road
Here is one of the concepts I did for Mad Max: Fury Road. This was only a short gig but very exciting nevertheless. We worked on the film at the Method Studios London Art Dpt: the director George Miller was trying to nail the look of the “toxic storm” and the visuals we provided back then, helped define the final look of that sequence in the film.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Here are some of the concepts I created during the Avengers Age Of Ultron pre-production in London. I also created a few more visuals during the post-production, back at Method Studios.
Some concept art I created for the “Magic Mystery Tour” sequence, where Strange experiences for the first time what the multiverse is all about…
