Did you know the earliest reported magic trick is over 5,000 years old?
That’s right; magic is an ancient art. However, the art of magic continues to change, evolve and gain exciting new facets. How is this possible?
It’s all thanks to talented, first-class magicians like the ones featured in this article who passionately explore new, uncharted territory and provide a unique contribution to the world of magic.

Close-up magic requires a high level of finesse and skill to get right. That’s because close-up magic tricks are performed within just a few feet of the audience using small props (like coins, cards or ribbons).
Therefore, every small hesitation or error is visible. So the act needs to be perfect, despite the tremendous pressure.
Eric Chen’s performances are precisely that – flawless – which is why he’s being recognized as one of the first-class magicians in the industry right now.
His work has been honored by The International Federation of Magic Societies with the World’s Champion Grand Prix award for close-up magic in 2018.
You can watch his winning magic act in the video below and see him change not only the colors on his cards, but also his vest.
