Paul McCarthy (born in 1945 in Salt Lake City, Utah) is a performance artist who currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

He studied art at the University of Utah in 1969. He went on the study at the San Francisco Art Institute getting his B.F.A. in painting. Then in 1972 he studied film, video, and art at the University of Southern California getting his M.F.A.

From 1982 until the present he has taught performance, video, installation, and performance art history at the Universtity of California, Los Angeles.

McCarthy began his art career with performances that employed gravity as a literal and metaphorical vehicle. By 1974 his work became far more aggressive and sexually provocative. His performances have been described as brutally self-assaultive.

McCarthy currently works in video and sculpture.
