Gheorghe Iliescu-Călinești (b. July 14, 1932, Călinești, Argeș County - d. March 12, 2002) was a Romanian sculptor, representative of avant-garde sculpture.
His father was a wood carver (he became famous because he graciously sculpted church iconostasis, painted by Iosif Keber), so Gheorghe Iliescu learned the secrets of this craft since childhood.

The first personal exhibition of the artist, who consecrated him, took place in 1966, at the Dalles Hall in Bucharest, where he was awarded the grand prize of the Union of Visual Artists in Romania.
