Avesalom Vujičić (Serbian: Вујичић, Авесалом; 1620 - after 1673) was a Serbian hieromonk and a renowned icon painter of the 17th century. He was a contemporary of Zograf Radul.[1]

His works are now part of the Post-Byzantine Art Collection at the National Museum of Serbia in Belgrade where Serbian art created during the Turkish period (from 1459 until 1804) is kept.

The most significant icons of the Collection is by the 17th-century artist, Avesalom Vujičić, who painted Stefan Prvovenčani, Stefan Dečanski, Uroš Nejaki and Prince Lazar, with martyr halos, along with the universal Christian saints. He also painted the Deesis[2] and Abraham receiving the Three Angels found in Kučevište (now part of North Macedonia).[3]

Considered by the Serbian Orthodox Church the patron saint of painters.[4][5] Vujičić's icon shows scenes from life of the saint: Saint Luke seated before an easel in a studio, cluttered by objects connected with painting.[6]
