Italo-Palestinian artist Mustafa Sabbagh was raised between Italy and the Middle East and has embedded in his DNA an instinct for travel and a cosmopolitan spirit. Having moved his first steps as assistant to Richard Avedon, Mustafa's background gained him popularity in the editorial sector and soon his photos began appearing in the glossy pages of the most important magazines in the world. The anti-canon aesthetic he has been able to trace sees skin as the primary testament of each individual's uniqueness.
Halfway between psychological investigation and anthropological study, Mustafa Sabbagh's works - photographic, video, multimedia and installations - find worthy place in some of the most prestigious museums of the world. TV channel Sky Arte HD spoke of him as "one of the eight most significant contemporary Italian artists", while curator and art historian Peter Weiermair ranked him among "the 100 most influential photographers in the world".
