Athos Bulcão (July 2, 1918 - July 31, 2008) was a Brazilian painter and sculptor. He was born in Rio de Janeiro.

In the 1940s he assisted Cândido Portinari with the "São Francisco de Assis" painting at the Pampulha Church, in Belo Horizonte. Later he moved to Paris, where he lived until 1949. Back to Brazil, he became one of the collaborators of the construction of Brasília, taking part in several of Oscar Niemeyer's projects, and in 1958 he moved to Brasília where he lived until his death in 2008.

Athos Bulcão died in Brasília on July 31, 2008 due to complications from Parkinson's disease.[1]
