"Real magic exists because it's not about tricks.

It's about people." 

~ Mariano Noriega ~



Mariano’s focus in the art began at the early age of seven after

being inspired by a magic show in his school.

In 1997, he began his studies in the Academy of Magical Arts

in Buenos Aires, Argentina, under the tutelage of diverse magic teachers.


Simultaneously, he learned contemporary approaches to

sleight-of-hand as well as ways to research and develop entirely

new systems of deception, specializing always in close-up magic.


For the past 20 years, he has been touring the World as a private working illusionist, performing for world-class venues, finest hotels

and elite parties.  


He has entertained millionaires and billionaires, Hollywood stars,

sports heroes, intellectual icons and royal families across

the continents.


Mariano has the ability to connect with his audience and let them

feel his magic on a personal level.


He isn’t just an illusionist. He is an artist of amazement.



Close-up magic causes the suspension of disbelief. It awes the audience who are instantly transported back to a more innocent time when anything was possible, all you can do is astonish and smile with childlike glee.

Within touching distance objects fly, transform or just disappear in front of your eyes! 

The show is adaptable in length and can be performed in any environment, inside or out, with no requirement for any stage setup, Mariano will just mingle with the crowd.
