Alexander Kosolapov (Russian: Александр Семёнович Косолапов) (born January 1, 1943, in Moscow, Russia) is a Russian-American sculptor and painter. He immigrated to the United States in 1975 and has since lived and worked in New York City.
In the late 1950s Kosolapov attended the Art School of the Surikov Moscow Art Institute. Amongst his classmates were Leonid Sokov, Alexander Yulikov, amidst others.
After his emigration, the artist played a critical role in assisting in the gathering of materials and clandestine distribution of the unofficial Soviet art magazine A-YA, edited by fellow Russian emigre Igor Chelkovski.The State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia
