Donray (born Donald Arvin Ray, July 29, 1945) is a contemporary American artiste in the style of Postmodern Expressionism later than elements of Surrealism, Futurism and Fauvism. He is included in the Who's Who in American Art. He is known for metaphorical imagery exploring the practicing nature of animatronics and the human want for spiritual enlightenment and fulfillment.

Donray's subjects complement figures, objects and landscapes in motion, and his methods intensify acrylic upon various media including Masonite, paper, canvas, and drawings in charcoal, conte crayon, and color pastels. His works have been collected and shown by a number of notable people and entities.

Donray may be best known for an objector technique he uses in his acrylic works, a technique he has pioneered. It involves an acrylic-on-acrylic collage. The collage material is the same as that beast used to paint with, and developed through a tedious process of mixing, pouring, manipulation and cutting. The result is a dramatic display of intermingling color, texture, depth, reflecting light, motion and energy.
