Suspended in a childhood world growing up between Syria and Spain, Marguet's father's bublegum factory is something he has attributed to his fascination with sculpting plastic objects from an early age. As an artist based in London, he brings together a range of interdisciplinary skills, from sculpture to making but always resulting in photography.
Recipient of the Sproxton Award for best work of his graduating year, Antonio completed his MA in Photography at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts in 2011. He was selected as one of the UK's new emerging artists at the London Art Fair with Catlin Art Guide 2012, and was then chosen to exhibit in Saatchi's New Sensations Exhibition in 2012, which run alongside London's Frieze Art Fair. He went on to win the first prize for Absolut Vodka's Blank commission, continuing in the legacy of artists they sponsor to create a unique artwork for their iconic brand.
Antonio was given his first solo show at Damien Hirst's Gallery Other Criteria, London, which ran during the Autumn of 2012, followed by 'Brush It In', a group show at Flowers East Gallery, London, in October.
Antonio has been quietly busy dedicating 2014 to the production of his latest project, 'Skin of Shark's Teeth', from his studio in London.
