Douglas Kerr MacDiarmid (14 November 1922 – August 26, 2020) was a New Zealand painter. He was known for his diversity and use of colour, and involved with key movements in twentieth-century art. He was born in Taihape, New Zealand.

MacDiarmid painted the portraits of Rita Angus and Theo Schoon among others.

In 2016, two of his paintings sold through Art+Object for a record price (for the artist) of more than $27,000 each as part of the Tim and Sherrah Francis Collection, the highest grossing art auction in New Zealand history.
