Christopher Pugliese is an American artist. He studied at the New York Academy of Art under Ted Jacobs and Tony Ryder. After that he continued his education at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design in New York City. He also studied privately in France with Seth Jacobs.

In 2010 the New Britain Museum of American Art held of retrospective of his work as part of their "New/Now" series.

The son of two modern artists Richard and Virginia Pugliese, Christopher grew up in Soho, NYC during the 1980s. Although surrounded by Modern Art objects, he was drawn instead to the paintings of the old masters, which had been out of fashion in the New York art world since the 1940s. Recently these works have begun to be reevaluated. 

Christopher is currently represented by Georges Berges Gallery in Soho, NYC.
