Fabiola Carranza was born and raised in Costa Rica. She received a Bachelor in Media Arts degree from Emily Carr University in 2006 and is currently cursing her Masters of Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia.

Her work seeks unusual forms of expression as an entry point to the consideration of more complex cultural phenomena. Recent solo exhibitions include, Apocalypse at Solentiname (Hardscrabble Gallery, Vancouver, 2012), Pale. Pale. Pale. Pale. Pale. Pale. Pale (The Crying Room, Vancouver, 2011) and El Hábito de Estrofas (Des Pacio, San José, CR, 2011).
