Jorma Gallen-Kallela (22 November 1898 in Ruovesi – 1 December 1939) was a Finnish artist. He followed in the footsteps of his father, the famed artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela.

After the destruction of his father's frescoes in the Juselius Mausoleum in Pori after the death of his father in 1931, Jorma used his father's sketches to recreate the artwork.[1]

Jorma Gallen-Kallela spent part of the Winter War as a lieutenant. While inspecting a downed plane of the Soviet Air Force on the second day of the war, he was shot dead while saving the life of captain Adolf Ehrnrooth.
