Born in 1949, Ross Bleckner 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 organizations.
