Mustafa Abd-Al-Fattah earned a Ph.D. in 1982 from the Faculty of Applied Arts, where he has been a professor of mural painting since 1992. His attractive paintings express his love of the Egyptian countryside. Typically, he captures scenes of everyday life where farmers become part of their surroundings. A foggy appearance adds a sense of mystery and an agelessness to his paintings. He applies paint thickly and uses masses of rich colors.

Mustafa Abd-Al-Fattah has received many awards and has participated in individual and collective exhibitions in Egypt and abroad. His art is featured in private collections, museums and galleries throughout Egypt, Europe and Asia.
