Paul McCarthy


Born in 1945 à Salt Lake City (Utah, USA)
Lives and works in Los Angeles (Californie, USA)

Paul McCarthy is one of the major figures of the West coast contemporary art. He is one of the first artists who started working on subjects such as disguise, parody, buffoons and gore. As a matter of fact his works look like hallucinated cartoons, filled with frightening and funny characters playing scenes of violence, mocking the commonplaces of social convention, like the taboos related to body and sex. Paint, video and sculpture are the weapons Paul McCarthy uses for his devastating assault directed against the culture we live in.
