The Chiusi Painter was an Attic black-figure vase painter, active in the final quarter of the sixth century BC. His real name is not known.

The Chiusi Painter was part of the so-called Leagros Group, the last major important group of painters in the black-figure style. He is characterised by what John Boardman calls a "boring delicateness"[1] compared to other artists of the group, failing to reach the standards of the Acheloos Painter for example.
