What People Say

“Arvind is a storyteller. When I watch him perform, he's not doing the same, old magic tricks. He breathes life into an arcane art and shares the beauty with everyone.”

Joe Hadsall, Team Ellusionist

“Incredible card feats in your living room - Arvind is a master of close-up magic. That really is the word. I really enjoyed watching the incredulous reactions of my friends to a series of intriguing and then shocking demonstrations, which we as an audience helped create. If you book Arvind for a performance, you can expect an interactive, memorable evening from a flexible entertainer.”

Barry Rawn, Delft, The Netherlands

“This special Sunday afternoon was really a kind of magic. It was beautiful to think we were there to have fun, to become children one more time in our lives. But at the same time also to meet some forgotten people in the city - people whose lives have everything except something magical. Nonetheless, Arvind's self-confidence, smartness and irony made this special afternoon a real fairy tale. I saw on those faces very children smiles, a gift that we rarely used to see! Unbelieving faces... amazed faces... beautiful faces that seemed to have left all their troubles outside in the square. So once more thanks and thanks from the bottom of my heart.”

Elena, Milan, Italy

“Arvind's magic will become the hit of your event! After seeing him perform, you will be left in awe of his magic and your guests will be thanking you forever because you hired him.”

Christopher James, Professional Magician, Vancouver

“It was my first experience of magic face to face. And it was mindblowing. I still can't believe what you've done. I was holding those cards!! No.. impossible.”

Aliz Fischer, Student, BME Budapest

“Arvind's magic has a personal touch to it, whether it is close-up for a small group or on stage in front of hundreds of people. He brings the audience in and makes them part of the show. He combines strong magic and mentalism with a presentation that entertains as much as it astonishes.”

David Shipley, New Jersey

“Fun. Pure, magic fun that makes you forget everything to enter in a world of fantasy. The hands' ability, the sharpness that you observe him with, in his world, where everything is possible. I was charmed and amused also because the show took place in the humbleness of a little space where every one of us was important. Arvind – with his talent that requires serious commitment and dedication – “donates” himself there, completely and gratuitously, only to entertain and raise us to a dynamic and creative dimension. I keep with me this gratuitousness and lightness. THANK YOU!”

Maria Rita, Milan, Italy

“You'd be a fool to miss his show! One of the best up-n-coming talent's I've had the pleasure of witnessing!”

Jonathan Bagwell, Rome, GA

“Arvind is one of the most skilled and multi-talented magicians I've ever had the pleasure of watching. Not only is he an exemplary card handler, but his Mentalism routine will leave you stunned for days! If you haven't seen him in action, you don't know what you're missing out on!.”

Jonathan Hutcherson, Chattanooga, TN
