Angelina Gualdoni (born 1975, San Francisco, US) is an artist based in New York.

Gualdoni attended Washington University, School of Art, from 1993–1995. She received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, in 1997 and her MFA in 2000 from University of Illinois at Chicago.

Angelina Gualdoni begins her paintings by pouring directly onto the canvas. This drawing via liquid creates a capricious and unpredictable ground and forms a base, both in terms of material and narrative. After one or often several layered pours, Gualdoni adds markings in heavier paint over top, defining objects or spaces. Constant tensions of emptiness and being, object and field, movement and stasis permeate her work. Gualdoni's earlier series investigated failed utopias of Modern architecture, and her current work extracts the essence of this decay by leaving the viewer to question what is coming into being and what is falling apart.

She is represented by Asya Geisberg Gallery in New York.
