1988-91 - participated in various exhibitions in the USSR and other countries.

Participated in more than 70 foreign and international projects, organized 25 personal exhibitions and projects in Ukraine, Poland, Austria and Germany.

"I am generally interested in the forms of creation and destruction, and on this verge - emergence of new forms, substances of new state."

Igor Yanovych

"Igor Yanovych is maitre of Ukrainian neo avant-garde, experienced "non figurative artist."

Alla Cherdyntseva, "Vechirni Visti"

"Texture plays an extremely important role in the artist's works."

Orest Holubets

"Yanovych's painting is an intuitive and imaginative phenomenon. Dictated by the inner nature, it opposes to conceptual games with the viewer, deduction of effects, engagement, provocation and shocking. It is an artistic act, directed not at the exterior, but at the interior world."

Inetta Hryniok, magazine "Suchasnist", 1999, №6
