Jose Balaca (1800–1869) was a Spanish painter born in Cartagena.

He attended the School of Painting in Madrid in 1836. Balaca then established himself in Lisbon, Portugal as a portrait painter and producer of miniatures, receiving commissions from the royal court. He travelled extensively, making lengthy stays in London and Paris, where he resided and worked for some time. Balaca finally returned to Spain and settled permanently in Madrid in 1852. He died there at the age of sixty-nine on November 19, 1869.
