Ross Bleckner (born 1949) is an American artist from New York City. He is the youngest artist ever to have a solo exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. His series of "stripes" paintings in the 1980s revitalized interest in Op art.

He has a B.A. from New York University (1971) and an M.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts (1973). He is also Jewish, gay, and an activist for AIDS organisations. Bleckner graduated from George W. Hewlett High School in 1967. Fellow students (same era) included Donna Karan; Sam LeFrak's daughter Francine, the producer; the photographer Susan Meiseles; and Art & Auction editor Bruce Wolmer.
