Mergouza is the latest town to be hit by the rising street art scene in Morocco

The Cultural Hybrid

Well-known street artist El Mac has brought more life to the streets of popular Moroccan desert towns after spending a few weeks in the country in June 2016.

El Mac was part of the Igloo Hong project and spent a couple weeks in Merzouga and Agdz, to paint some small murals with an all star team of artists including David Choe, Andrew Hem, Aaron Horkey, Mars 1, Esao Andrews and DVS1.
