Strumillo studied at the State Higher School of Visual Arts in Łódź between 1945 and 1947 under the supervision of Władysław Strzemiński. When the academy changed its profile to one focused more on applied arts, he moved to Kraków. He received his diploma in 1950 at the Faculty of Painting of the Academy of Fine Arts. He belonged to the Self-Taught Group (Grupa Samokształceniowa) led by Andrzej Wróblewski (together with Andrzej Wajda, Jan Tarasin, Walerian Borowczyk and others).
