From 1935 to 1937 Poliakoff studied at the Slade School of Art in London (he also had bit parts as a musician in a few films while there). On his return to Paris he met Kandinsky, whose influence turned Poliakoff to abstract painting. Others who had profound influences on him were Robert and Sonia Delaunay. From 1951 on he exhibited internationally, in London, New York, Tokyo, Belgium, Italy and Scandinavia.
His Print were also a major part of his work oeuvre.
