Jeremy Moon (1934-1973) was a British abstract painter who emerged onto the London art scene in the early 1960s and became known for his geometric paintings.

He taught sculpture at St Martin's School of Art and painting at Chelsea School of Art; he exhibited extensively within the United Kingdom and internationally. He lived and worked in Surrey from 1966 to 1973, when he died following a motorcycle accident at the age of 39.

A major retrospective exhibition of his work was held at the Serpentine Gallery, London in 1976, and toured to Manchester City Art Gallery; Kettle's Yard, Cambridge; Ulster Museum, Belfast; and Ikon Gallery, Birmingham. His work is held in international collections including Tate; British Museum; Victoria and Albert Museum; Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Art Institute of Chicago; Milwaukee Art Museum; Albright-Knox Gallery, Buffalo; and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence, USA.
