Adam Kossowski (1905 - 1986) was a Polish artist notable for his works for the Catholic church in the United Kingdom.

Kossowski had been captured in Warsaw in 1939, and was held for three years of the Second World War in a slave labour camp in the Soviet Union.

He arrived in Britain from the Russian labour camps in 1942, and was soon invited to join the Guild of Catholic Artists and Craftsmen.

Many of his works can be seen at Our Lady of the Assumption & St. Simon Stock, Aylesford Priory in Aylesford, Kent, ME20 7BX
