Francisco Rangel was born in 1971 in Querétaro (Mexico).

He commenced his studies of drawing, painting and muralism in 1980. Painting has always been, and continues to be, his primary medium.

In 1995, he graduated from architecture in Mexico and worked for the next 5 years as an architect, building and restoring traditional real estate.

In 1996, he studied Christian iconography in the INAH (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia) and worked as an intern, managing several investigations.

Two years later, he participated in the course “Fundamentals and Techniques of Oil Painting”, under direction of Master Santiago Carbonell.

In 1999, he obtained the permission to reproduce copies of masters in the museum El Prado in Madrid (Spain), and, in 2000, relocated from Mexico to Spain to take advantage of this opportunity and dedicate all of his time to painting.

In 2002, he obtained his Masters Degree of Theory and Practice of Contemporaneous Plastic Arts in the University Complutense of Madrid (Spain).

In 2003, he completed an intensive course of camera assistant in ECAM (Escuela de Cinematografía y de Audiovisual de la Comunidad de Madrid).

In 2004, he completed the course of Screencraft editing in the ECAM.

From 2002 to 2004, Francisco Rangel benefited from a scholarship in the ARAUCO Fundación in Chinchon (Spain), under the direction of Master Guillermo Muñoz Vera.

In 2007 he completed a course of video under direction of master Fernando Llanos in Madrid.
