COLLAGE & MIXED MEDIA ARTIST
Paul Plumadore has been making paper montage art since 1975 and, in 1976, was named “Upcoming Illustrator” by Art Direction Magazine. His work has graced book jackets, record covers, and editorial stories for Dell Books, Avon Books, RCA Records, Psychology Today, The New York Times, and many others.
Paul began his eclectic career at age 7 when he discovered the world of dance. He was on the faculty of the Dance Department of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts shortly after receiving his BFA there, and became a founding member of The NYU Dance Ensemble. He went on to perform with The Paul Taylor Dance Company; to head the Dance Department at Sweet Briar College in Virginia; and to present his own choreography under the aegis of Paul Plumadore & Co.
From 2006-2012 he and partner Jim Tindell created Center44, representing 75 International Antiques and Modernism dealers in midtown Manhattan, catering to the upscale design trade.
During this time, Paul created “Brain Child”, a surreal fairy tale told in rhyme and over 100 montage illustrations, which will soon be available on Amazon. His second book, a memoir of his years as a dancer, titled “Archive 1957-1974” is also available on Amazon.
He and Jim currently live and garden on the Delaware River in a self-designed house that was featured as “Home of the Month” in Log Home Living magazine.
Since starting to exhibit his artwork again in 2015, he has appeared in numerous gallery shows around America including “The Northeastern Biennial”, “Art of the State” at the State Museum of PA, and “Where Worlds Collide”, his first solo show, at AFA Gallery in Scranton, PA.
