Ray Ferrer (born August 3, 1979) is a world renowned, American artist known for his work with spray paint and hand-cut stencils.

Ferrer's medium is a variation of Spray paint art. He typically paints a canvas dark and then paints onto it through a stencil with a lighter colour. He uses an X-Acto knife to cut his stencils.[1] Ferrer's subjects include musicians, actors, architecture and pop culture, including Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Willie Nelson, Jim Hendrix, James Gandolfini, The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. He showcases his work on his 'Urban Wall Art' blog and social media.[2]

Before becoming an artist Ferrer spent seven years in the US Army. Following this he studied Engineering and received an MBA from Auburn University, later working as a corporate consultant.[3]

Ray Ferrer is currently a resident of San Diego, California after relocating from the East Coast in 2014.
