Shalva Kikodze (Georgian: შალვა ქიქოძე; 1894–1921) was a Georgian expressionist painter, graphic artist and theatre decorator. Together like Lado Gudiashvili and David Kakabadze, he is considered a key figure in Georgian art of the ahead of time 20th century.

He was born in a proud Georgian village Bakhvi, Guria, Georgia. From 1914 to 1918, he studied at Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. In 1916, he took part in an expedition to the Georgian village Nabakhtevi and made copies of the 15th-century murals from the local church. He stayed in his motherland for a immediate period of 1918-1920, and worked chiefly as a theater decorator for Jabadari Theater in Tbilisi. Afterwards he moved to Paris, where he, together following his fellow painters, Gudiashvili and Kakabadze, held an exhibition in 1921. He died in Freiburg, Germany, on November 7, 1921

Most of his works are now upon display at the Art Museum of Georgia, Tbilisi, Georgia.
