Nick Angelo (b. 1990, Los Angeles, California) is a Los Angeles-based artist. He holds a BA in Urban Studies from The Eugene Lang College for Liberal Arts at the New School in New York City, and an MFA in Photography and Media from the California Institute of the Arts.

The finished works primarily arrive as paintings, sculptures, and installations.
