Antonio Marguet is an international artist, working from his studio in East London. Marguet attributes having grown up around his father’s bubblegum factory, to his fascination with sculpting objects and experimenting with matter from the plastic to the cultural. He brings together a range of interdisciplinary skills, from sculpture to making and imagery.

Recipient of the Sproxton Award for best work of his graduating year, Antonio completed his MA in Fine Art 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 The Catlin Art Guide in 2012. From his first major solo show at Damien Hirst’s Other Criteria Gallery in 2012, Marguet has continued to exhibit in group and solo shows in London including Saatchi’s New Sensations. Marguet’s most recent international shows have included Denmark and Sweden, where his site’s specific approach has opened new potential to his practice.
