Rashid Rana was born in Lahore, Pakistan. He received a BFA from the National College of Arts, Lahore and an MFA at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston. He is a globally recognized artist distinct for his ideas, imagery and pictorial strategies. He has developed a conceptually driven, well-informed art practice, which consists of a pixilated attention to formal concerns. His works revolve around a subtle simultaneous exploration of media and identity – both bound by a sharp political edge as he satirizes pop culture and looks to reinterpret varied elements of art and cultural history.
His work has been shown extensively around the world, especially at some prestigious galleries and museums like Chatterjee & Lal, Mumbai; Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai; Cornerhouse, Manchester, UK & New Art Exchange, Nottingham,UK; Lisson Gallery, London, UK; Fotomuseum | Winterthur, Switzerland, and Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Saatchi Gallery ,UK ; Lower Belvedere, Vienna; Asia Society, New York.
