Vivek Desai

Illusionist

An Indian boy with an American dream is what we would like to define Vivek Desai’s childhood. Spending the days of his youth in the United States of America, Vivek was always intrigued by the modern magic that was practiced there. He learnt everything he knows about magic by himself with the help of books. With the minimal resources that he could avail for himself, he grasped, learned, and stepped closer to his passion.

As this young boy came to India, the city of Pune embraced him with warmth. He started practicing his tricks for small groups of people. It was these free gigs that made him aware about the perception of Indians towards magic. The common belief that masses held were that of old tradition magic performed by a man wearing long colorful robes pulling our pigeons from his hat. The concept of magic relating to cardistry, mentalism, and illusions were still far and aloof from the majority.

Vivek Desai has not only introduced relatively new concepts in India but also managed to charm his audience as his fame grows. His workshops and YouTube channel have also helped in reaching a dais from where he not only reaches out to the audience but also connects and influences them. It is this quality that we are glad to celebrate.
