Aimo Johan Kustaa Tukiainen (October 6, 1917, Orivesi - June 3, 1996 Helsinki) was a Finnish sculptor.
Tukiainen was one of the most important Finnish sculptors in the postwar years,
and he designed several public monuments, the most famous of which is Marshal Mannerheim's riding statue in Helsinki.
In the early 1960s, he moved from a realistic to informal style.
Tukiainen also influenced the state art administration and established Purnu Art Center.
He received the title of Professor in 1977.
