Since 1992,  he has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in Ukraine and abroad, followed by a number of solo exhibitions in Ukraine, Russia, and France. The latest and so far the most prestigious solo exhibition of Makeyev's paintings took place in 2004 at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France. Makeyev's works can be found in private collections of many international celebrities and political figures. Makeyev also creates stage design for leading Crimean theatres.
