    Biography. Plumb was born in Luton and studied at the Byan Shaw School and The Central School of Art & Design. His teachers included Victor Pasmore, Keith Vaughan and William Turnbull. Plumb was an abstract painter, and considered Jackson Pollock the greatest abstract painter [Studio Magazine, December 1963, interview with Mervyn Levy]. Regularly using vinyl, cloth and electrical tape in his pictures, in the late 1970s he moved to more figurative painting, alongside his continued pursuit of abstract expression. By the late 1960s he had exhibited widely and taught in America before returning to the Central College to teach. The Tate Gallery holds his work.
