   Pavel Shevelev was born in Moscow in 1975 and first exhibited his works in 1995. In 1997 he graduated from the Moscow Institute of Graphic Arts and Publishing, majoring in graphic arts. Shevelev staged his first solo show in Moscow in 1998 and his second in 2000. He does primarily large-size graphic works and book and magazine illustrations. He has designed and illustrated more than 15 books and cooperated with several publishers.

   Shevelev began to cooperate with the Kovcheg Gallery of Moscow in 1996 and is regularly contributing to its projects, including the gallery exhibits at the International Art Moscow Fair (2003, 2005 and 2007). Of special success was his project ‘Case Drawings’ (2005), which Kovcheg showed in connection with the trial of Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev. The artist was invited to exhibit this cycle at the 1st Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemprorary Art (Greece).

   Shevelev’s works are in private collections inside and outside Russia. In the summer of 2009 his works were shown at the exhibition of Kovcheg Gallery artists in Kuopio (Finland). In the autumn of 2009, together with other Kovcheg artists, Shevelev took part in the exhibition ‘Personal Acquaintance’ (within the Parallel Programme of the 3rd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art). In 2010 he held a solo show, ‘Fourteen Days in Iran’ (Moscow), and contributed his works to the Kovcheg Gallery exhibits at Art.Fair 21 (Cologne, Germany). In the autumn of 2011 Shevelev’s works formed part of the Kovcheg Gallery exposition ‘Between Object and Imagination’, mounted within the Parallel Programme of the 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art.
