The talented winger has linked up with Roberto De Zerbi's team after growing frustrated at his lack of regular starts under Barcelona boss Xavi.
De Zerbi told Brighton's official website that he is hopeful that the club will be able to get Fati back to his best.
De Zerbi said: 'This is a great deal for all of us. I am sure Ansu will help us to reach a new target and we can help him get back at the level he deserves to be.'
Brighton technical director David Weir described 20-year-old Fati as one of the best young players in the world.

Weir said: 'We are delighted to bring Ansu to the club. He is one of the most highly-rated young players in the world and arrives with an impressive amount of experience both domestically and in European competition, despite his age.
'This season is the biggest in the club's history and we're really happy that a player of Ansu's quality is going to be part of it. We will give him the opportunity to embed himself in the squad and to get used to working with Roberto, but naturally we're excited to see him in a Brighton shirt.'
Sevilla had also been interested in a move for Fati but he elected to move to Brighton instead.
Fati broke into the Barcelona side as a 16-year-old in 2019, becoming the club's youngest ever scorer when he found the net against Osasuna.
He has made 112 appearances for Barcelona in total but an injury hampered his progress and he has struggled to start regularly under Xavi.
