Karl Wirsum (born 1939 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American artist. A member of the notorious Chicago artistic group The Hairy Who, he helped set the foundation for Chicago's art scene in the 1970s. Wirsum is primarily a painter, though he has worked with prints, sculpture and even digital art.

Wirsum was one of the earliest members of The Hairy Who (along with James Falconer, Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, and Suellen Rocca).
