He participates in different art projects, including architectural development of the city. In 1987 Igor is awarded with the 3rd place grant in design sphere as the author of the best interior design in the Far East region of RSFSR.

In 1992 Igor Paliy moves to Ukraine. In 1993 his first personal exhibition of canvas painting took place in the National State gallery. 1994 – the second personal exhibition in the same National State gallery. Meanwhile, a number of other personal exhibitions are happening in the countries of Western Europe: Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary. Igor participates in international art gatherings and collective art exhibitions in Ukraine.

The year 1995 becomes a break-through period for the artist. It starts with the personal exhibition in Paris, in the gallery “Art presant". In the same 1995, Igor cooperates with a number of international galleries in Poland, Krakow and Warsaw.

Artist's canvases are collected in numerous private and state-owned collections in almost every corner of the world. Being closely related to the aesthetic of symbolism, Igor Paliy forms his own art system. Using his special means of triggering visual perception, he is able to form a composition in an absolutely new way.
