Gib I. Mihăescu (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈd͡ʒib mihəˈesku]; 1894–1935) was a Romanian novelist and dramatist.

Born in Drăgăşani, Mihăescu wrote short stories such as Grandiflora, and novels. His work depicts obsessive, often erotic, feelings. His works include Rusoaica ("The Russian Woman"), Femeia de ciocolată ("The Chocolate Woman"), and his masterpiece, Donna Alba. His style has been compared by several critics to that of Fyodor Dostoevsky.
