Michel Delacroix (born 1933 in Paris) is a French painter in the "naif" style. Artist Michel Delacroix studied at the Lycee Louis-le-Grand. He has had numerous one man shows as well as group exhibitions all over Europe. Michel Delacroix's primitive style in his paintings and graphics combine structure and detail with rich color to convey the bustling, diverse activity of the street of Paris, his native city. Delacroix's subjects include street scenes of Paris and other nearby areas of France set during his childhood during the Nazi occupation. He was only seven years old at the time. He is the father of French painter Fabienne Delacroix. He is also the father of the late Bertrand Delacroix (1965-2015) who opened fine art galleries in New York City and Boston which exclusively represent his father's work.

Delacroix's work is now shown at M Fine Arts Galerie in Boston, Massachusetts.
