Lomakin graduated from the I. E. Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in the B. V. Ioganson workshop in 1952.
In 1978, Lomakin won a Kirov Factory Prize and in 1981 he was named Honorable Artist of Russia. Lomakin comments, "I am a realist. I like to paint interesting people. I like landscapes, too. I have painted many subjects, but I like working on portraits the most. It seems to me that the graphic art should be diversified. Everybody sees in his own, different way. And this diversity, this 'dispute', can result in interesting productions. However, I think that the sense of life, the presence of live nature, is indispensable in painting; for nothing is more beautiful than nature."
