He studied in M.Kalinin arts and crafts school and in the Institute of applied and decorative art, with A.Deyneka and V.Derunov as his teachers. V.Favorski, L.Bruni, A.Zelenski were his spiritual teachers. Their school helped him to determine his own artistic principles. In the 60s Shakhovskoy became one of those artists who formed a new aesthetics. His love for analysis, composition congruence, pithiness of form let him create nonordinary works. He always says sculpture as a space form. On this principle are his famous wooden compositions made in mid 70s based.

For building a wooden Novomuchenikov church in Butovo (Moscow) D.M.Shakhovskoy received a patriarchy diploma. The exhibition in the Marble Palace shows 14 sculptures and 20 drawings of the master.
