Gabriella Porpora (Born June 22, 1942 – ) is an italian artist, painter and plexiglass, also known as acrylic or acrylic glass, and wood sculptor.

Her artwork can be inserted in the steps of Avant-garde art movements.

Her artworks are experimental, often innovative.

Born in Rome, Italy, to a Roman mother and a Neapolitan father, she founded, among other twelve artists, the Gruppo 12 art movement.

She has lived in Paris (Roumania, 1972-1976), in Paris (France, 1976-1984) and then back to Rome (Italy, 1984-today).

She has sculpted original art-crafts called "Pictoscultures".

She is still active in many exhibitions, most of all in different places in Italy.
