A. Nichel (born c. 1993 in Dolomite) is an artist, known for finger-painted portraits and for wall murals.

Nichel graduated from Hueytown High School in 2010 and studied graphic arts and communications at Lawson State Community College. After selling her first painting through SnapChat, she started getting more commissions. A portrait she posted of rapper Nipsey Hussle went viral and attracted notice from several celebrities. She has taken commissions from music producer Jazze Pha and given paintings to Deontay Wilder and the Debbie Allen Dance Academy. She was then invited to exhibit a selection of paintings at the WACO Theater Center in North Hollywood, California.

In 2021 A. Nichel was commissioned by TaMarcus Pruitt to paint a mural featuring portraits of Nipsey Hussle, Kobe Bryant, and Chadwick Boseman on the outside wall of his store, The Kloset, at 5200 Valley Road in Fairfield.
