Enrico Baj (October 31, 1924 – June 15, 2003) was an Italian artist and writer on art. Many of his works show an obsession with nuclear war. He created prints, sculptures and collages. His most well-known pieces are probably the series of "Generals": absurd characters made from found objects such as belts or medals.

He was close to the surrealist and dada movements, and was later associated with CoBrA. His works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Tate Gallery in London, among others.
