Togrul Farman oglu Narimanbekov (Azerbaijani: Toğrul Fərman oğlu Nərimanbəyov, Russian: Тогрул Нариманбеков; 7 August 1930 – 2 June 2013)  was one of the prominent modern Azerbaijani artists.
Narimbanbeyov was born in Baku. His father, Farman Narimanbeyov, who hailed from Shusha, studied in Toulouse; in 1929 he came back to Baku and participated in the construction of Mingachevir Hydro Power Plant, but in the 1930s was sentenced to imprisonment. His wife Irma Laroudé, a Frenchwoman, was exiled to Uzbekistan and stayed there till 1961.
He assumed that, it is necessary for arts to return to origins of national culture. He described his creativity as a combination of abstract and figurative arts.
François Narimanbekov is his son, born on 24 May 2001 of his second marriage with Sevil Narimanbekova. Besides artistic activity, Narimanbeyov had excellent voice and he performed various arias of Azerbaijani and foreign composers in his youth.
