Arana was born on 23 July 1943. He grew up in Monte Grande where his parents were farmers and moved with his family to Lomas de Zamora and then Lanús. He studied acting with Marcello Lavalle and Augusto Fernandes.
In the 1980s, he became popular for his part in an advertisement for Crespi wine, and then for his part in the TV sitcom Matrimonios y algo más, created by Hugo Moser, in which he played two characters who were highly acclaimed by the public: the "Groncho" (in the comedy sketch "El Groncho y La Dama" (The Shabby Man and the Lady)) and Huguito Araña (a stereotypically feminine gay man).
After suffering a hard fall, Arana was hospitalized and subsequently tested positive for COVID-19 during the COVID-19 pandemic in Argentina. Arana died of the disease on 11 October 2020, at the age of 77.
