First educated at the National College of Art, Lahore, and earning an MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Rana also studied fashion design in Paris in 1996. Born in Pakistan, he now divides his time between Toronto and Lahore, where he is on the Faculty at the School of Visual Arts, Beaconhouse National University.

In works that suggest a simultaneous exploration of media and identity bound by a political edge, Rana satirizes pop culture, transforms symbols of traditional Muslim daily life, and reinterprets elements of art and cultural history.
