Angela Singer (born 1966 in Essex) is an English artist and animal rights activist who now lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She studied at University of Auckland.

In the early/mid 90s Singer worked with the animal rights group Animal Liberation Victoria, Australia (ALV), antivivisection campaign. She works primarily with discarded old hunting trophy taxidermy, recycling it into new sculptural forms that explore the human animal divide. Like other artists such as Sue Coe, she is concerned with the ethics of using live animals in art. Singer refuses to work with living animals or to have living creatures harmed or killed for her art. She is not related to Peter Singer, an animal rights activist and philosopher.
