His father was a cavalry major and an amateur calligrapher. After completing his basic education, he attended Kuleli Military High School, continuing to the Turkish Military Academy, where he studied art with Osman Nuri Pasha and Süleyman Seyyid. In 1881, he received an award from Sultan Abdul Hamid II. Three years later, he graduated with the rank of Lieutenant and was appointed an assistant to Nuri Pasha. He had been planning to continue his studies in Naples, but had to cancel his plans, due to a cholera epidemic there.

Four years later, he was promoted to Kolağası (Senior Captain) and he began working as a designer at the new Imperial Porcelain Factory. He also worked with Fausto Zonaro, who was teaching painting to a local dignitary's wife at Yıldız Palace.

In 1914, he began teaching landscape painting at the School of Fine Arts (now the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University). After cutbacks by the Ministry of Education, he moved to the "Çamlıca Girls' High School", where he stayed for three years, followed by time at another girls' school in Üsküdar then, in 1929, a boys' school, where he was teaching at the time of his death.

His last exhibition, organized by Celal Esad Arseven, a painter and member of Parliament, was in Paris in 1928. Hoca Ali Rıza's work remained important in the early Republic, and even after his death, his work was exhibited posthumously in state sponsored exhibitions. In 1933, the Ankara Halkevi featured his work in what has been documented as the institution's first exhibition, and one of sixteen solo-exhibitions, which foregrounded his mastery of landscape painting.
