He emigrated to Sweden in 1968. Naliwajko worked in painting, graphics and sculpture. In his figurative art, he combines religious symbolism, an exalted divinity with erotic elements, which gives the compositions a vibrating mood.

He also incorporated his dream of painting alongside his idol, Salvador Dalí.
