Paul Lasaine is an American concept artist and illustrator who served as a VFX Art Director, with Jeremy Bennett, in the making of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy. In pre-production, he made matte paintings of numerous scenes and locations; many are displayed in Gary Russell's books on the art behind the films.

Before working on the trilogy, Lasaine served as matte painter or supervisor for dozens of films, since 1988 with Ernest Saves Christmas. He was a background-art supervisor for the acclaimed Prince of Egypt (1998).

After the success of The Lord of the Rings, he became visual development artist for feature animated films such as Shark Tale (2004) and most recently Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018).
