Aba Bayefsky, CM (April 7, 1923 – May 5, 2001) was a Canadian artist and teacher. Bayefsky was born to a Jewish family in Toronto, Ontario, the second son of a Russian-born father and a Scottish-born mother. He studied at the Central Technical School. During his teens, he attended classes at the Children’s Art Centre of the Art Gallery of Ontario, where he was encouraged by such artists as Arthur Lismer, Erma Sutcliffe, Dorothy Medhurst, and A. Y. Jackson. He later studied at the Académie Julian. Bayefsky enlisted in the RCAF in October, 1942, and was made a Flight Lieutenant. He was appointed an official war artist in December, 1944, assigned to depict airborne operations over north-west Europe. He made several paintings of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. After the war, he was an instructor at the Ontario College of Art.
