Tobias Stranover or Toby Stranovius (1684–1756) was a Transylvanian Saxon born painter (1684 – after 1731).
Stranover was born in Hermannstadt but travelled to Germany, the Netherlands, and England, where he stayed. He is registered in Hamburg, Hermannstadt, Amsterdam and London. He became a follower of the bird painter Melchior d'Hondecoeter and presumably also Jakob Bogdány, whose daughter Elisabeth he married.
Stranover died in London.
