Mohamed Margazi was born in 1987 in the port city of Essaouira where he lives with his mother, two sisters and two brothers. As the oldest son he helps his mother take care of their household. After completing high school he turned the house’s garage into a workshop and started working as a blacksmith. In his spare time he started experimenting with the leftover metal and recycling it into figurines from his imagination.
Inspired by sea creatures or by different animals you can see in Essaouira's beach or streets, Mohammed creates figurines using old tea pots, spoons, forks, bicycle parts and every metal scrap he can recycle and give a new life to.
