Tchebakov studied at the Omsk Art College and from 1939 to 1948 at the All-Union State Institute of Cinematography in the workshops of Fyodor Bogorodsky and Yuri Pimenov. As did most of his contemporaries, he created a series of paintings on various patriotic subjects but notably he also worked as a scenographer for Sergei Eisenstein’s film Ivan the Terrible. He was one of the painters of the well-known classic work of Russian socialist realism, Lenin’s Speech at the Third Congress of the Komsomol, which was created by a group of fifteen painters led by Boris Ioganson and was acquired by the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow in 1950. For this he received the Stalin Art Prize, jointly with the other contributors, in 1951. Tchebakov’s paintings are represented in many public collections in Russia, notably the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.
