Ray Caesar (b. October 26, 1958) is a visual surreal artist and digital painter residing in Toronto, Canada. He has exhibited at the Mondo Bizarro art gallery in Italy.

Graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design, Caesar went on to work in the Art and Photography department of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, where he has documented various child inflictions in sketches. This gruesome experience has enabled Caesar to create surreal landscapes and models with very detailed photographic textures. Caesar uses 3D modeling software, Maya with figures and environments built out of Nonuniform rational B-spline surfaces.

Trivia
