By Nile El Wardani
Dr. Mostafa El Razzaz approaches his work with delight, passion, enchantment and discipline. He is one of the rarest of birds. As an artist he began to spread his wings at the age of 19 when he sailed down the Nile from Cairo following a sense of adventure and a desire to know and understand Nubia. It was 1962 when he lived amongst the Nubians, that he began his artistic endeavors sketching and drawing the uniquely Nubian architecture and people. These became his first “elements” which have remained essential features of his canvas for more than six decades.
