Paul Yore was born in 1987, Naarm/Melbourne, and lives and works on Gunaikurnai land in Gippsland, Australia. Yore completed studies in painting, archaeology and anthropology at Monash University in 2010, before taking up full time work as an artist. He is celebrated as a prominent queer practitioner, working across installation, sound, video, collage, and textiles.

His work is held in public and private collections, both in Australia and internationally, including the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of South Australia, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Si Shang Art Museum Beijing, The Ian Potter Museum and Bendigo Art Gallery.
