Our Special International Guest

Mario Lopez is a FISM winning sleight-of-hand master who makes everything he touches look like real magic.

In this two hour lecture he will share his groundbreaking secrets that not only won him his FISM Award and fooled Penn & Teller, but gained him the respect and acclaim from the biggest names in magic today.

You’ll learn magic with cigarettes (that you CAN use), sponge balls, coins, cards and all manner of everyday items.

You’ll learn his philosophy of magic and how comedy can make magic even stronger.

He has just released a 3DVD teaching set with Vanishing Inc at US$80, but for less than HALF that price, you can spend time with him learning from the maestro himself.





Mario Lopez, one of the most devilish wizards is a pioneer of the “New Wave of Spanish Magic” where Body, Heart and Eyes walk besides Brain, Hands and Smile.

Fresh attitude (from his breve happiness) together with constant work (from his passion to everything he accomplishes) lead to his organic art.

Mario is The Art Of Magic as we have always dreamt!

He has won many awards that endorse his career, some of them are the most important prizes in the world of magic, Like FISM or Ron McMillan…

Audiences around the world know that watching Mario perform magic is a unique and distinctive experience.

If you are not one of them, you should remedy it immediately!!


“I am the president of the Mario Lopez fan club! I love his work!!!”

“Mario… the Doug Henning of our times.”
