BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Mohammed (Moe) Mustafa was born in Kuwait in 1985 to Palestinian parents, brought up in Jordan, and is currently based in Finland. He is very proud of his mixed cultural background and heritage, considering himself an artist at once Palestinian, Jordanian, and Finnish. Moe Mustafa is involved in various art and design fields including graphic design, sound design, video art, and theatre. His work in design and video involves a combination of duotone colors, contrast colors, typography, and glitch, while in theatre Moe Mustafa’s writing and direction veer into the abstract and avant-garde.
