Born in Preston England in 1965, Plum began his training at a young age in the family’s Antiques business, and soon became an established Art & Antiques dealer and collector. At 21 he immigrated to Toronto to run the family antique business in Canada.
Whilst traveling through Amsterdam in 2007 Plum was struck down by lightening in the Van Gogh Museum – likely by the old proverbial master himself. Ever since Plum has developed his deep sensitivities with painting, sculpture and photography. With expertise in Japanese, Chinese and 20th century British ceramics, Plum’s influences provide his art with an evocative, rich palette and a sculptural sense of from.
One could call it Abstract Expressionism or Automatism, but Plum’s colourful, often winsome or enlightening stories and travels emerge seamlessly through the abstraction, creating a unique and bold history of images open to interpretation.
