Paul MacCormaic was born in Dublin in 1961 and grew up in Finglas. He has been exhibiting since he was a teenager. He studied History of Art at UCD and went on to study Fine Art at Dún Laoghaire IADT, graduating in 2006. Since then, he has been working as a professional artist. Most of his work is social commentary. He believes that his role is to observe human behaviour. He works in mini-series, where he researches a topic and makes art from his findings. Once the issue is fully explored, he moves on to the next one, never repeating himself.
