After leaving school, Gela Chkvanava (born 1967 in Sukhumi) was drafted into the army and assigned to an anti-aircraft and anti-missile unit in Petersburg. After military service, he returned to Sukhumi and studied philology until the Abhkazia war intervened. Chkvanava's house burned down, together with his manuscripts. He now lives as an exile in Akhalkalaki. He has won various literary prizes in Georgia.
