Ugo Nespolo (born at Mosso, Biella on August 29, 1941) is an Italian painter and sculptor, particularly known for his experimental films,  his applied art works and his artistic collaborations in advertising, theater and literature.

Nespolo graduated at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti of Turin under Enrico Paulucci and obtained a degree in Modern Literature at the University of Turin, with a thesis on Semiology.
His career as an artist started in the 1960s and his work was influenced by Pop Art, which was becoming popular in Italy in those years, Conceptual Art,  Arte Povera and Fluxus, movements that he learned to appreciate during his frequent trips to the United States. After the first trip in 1967, he continued to regularly visit the States, where he spent long periods especially during the 1980s. Irony and transgression were part of his art and since then, and will characterise also all the rest of Nespolo's work in the years to come. Since 2010 he has been in the Honour Committee of Immagine & Poesia.
