In 1885 he went to the St. Panteleimon Monastery on the Holy Mt. Athos, where he studied and worked in a monastic icon-painting workshop till 1891. Afterwards his works were noticed by the sculptor V. A. Beklemishev on his visit to the Athos Monastery. Mr. Beklemishev invited Filipp Malyavin to St. Petersburg and gave him shelter. 

In 1892 Filipp Malyavin entered the Painting Department of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts. In 1894 he joined the studio of Ilya Repin and studied together with the artists E. Grabar, K. A. Somov, and A. P. Ostroumov. 
In 1900 Filipp Malyavin travelled to France to accompany his painting The Laughter displayed at the World Fair in Paris and awarded a gold medal. Afterwards the painting was exhibited in Venice and bought by the Italian government for the Venice Academy.
 
Upon returning to Russia the artist settled down in an estate near the Aksinyino Village near Ryazan and stayed mostly there.
Filipp Malyavin participated in exhibitions of the Itinerants in the 1900s. In 1906 he displayed his painting The Vortex at the exhibition of the World of Art association. Later he also became a member of the Union of Russian Artists.
After the October Revolution the artist moved to Moscow in 1920. In 1922 he left for France to organize his exhibition there. He settled down in Paris and never returned to Russia. The year 1924 saw Filipp Malyavin’s successful exhibition in the Charpentier Gallery in Paris. 
 
Lots of his works painted abroad were still created on Russian subjects. In the 1930s Filipp Malyavin repeatedly organized his own exhibitions in various European countries. He soon moved from Paris to Nice.
