Alexander Semeonovitch Liberman (born in Kiev September 4, 1912 - died in Miami November 19, 1999) was a Russian-American magazine editor, publisher, painter, photographer, and sculptor.

His highly recognizable sculptures are assembled from industrial objects (segments of steel I-beams, pipes, drums, etc.,) often painted in uniform bright colors. Prominent examples are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Storm King Art Center, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Laumeier Sculpture Park, Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park, Tate Gallery, and the Guggenheim Museum.
