Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Archictecture in 1943 from the studio of Sergei Gerasimov. He was a member othe Union of Russian Artists and the Union of Moscow Artists.

Makarov's colleagues considered him a genius. He painted subjects in all genres and was well-known for landscape, still life and figurative. His portraits were often of famous Russian personalities in the fields of art, theater, music and writing. In these works, he composed the figures "surrounded by the world" with the subject's own creative spirit evident. 

Makarov's works are in the permanent collections of several Russian museums as well as in private collectins throughout the world.
