Who is he?
Lennart Green is one of the most innovative magicians ever. His approach to magic with cards is so unique and surprising that when other magicians first witnessed his performances, they could not even begin to fathom what techniques were at play. In fact, many knowledgeable experts were so baffled, they couldnt believe that Lennart was using a normal deck of cards!
By now, youve probably heard the story of his erroneous disqualification from the 1988 FISM Card Magic competition, but it bears repetition. Some of the judges thought his effects were so impossible they could only have been accomplished with gimmicked cards or the use of stooges! So, the next time the competition was held, in 1991, Lennart allowed only the judges to handle and shuffle the cards, AND he gave them the deck at the end of the performance. Of course it was a normal deck of cards, so he won First Prize, and a living legend was born!
He was catapulted into nearly instantaneous, and well-deserved, fame within the magic world. Soon, we all came to know and love his seemingly chaotic style and his unorthodox, yet powerful, techniques he had been quietly working on for years. His innovative sleight-of-hand skill, coupled with his love of mathematical principles, make his effects truly astonishing. Cards vanish into light, appear from nowhere, and somehow sort themselves into whatever order he desires.
Lennarts unquenchable thirst for knowledge leads him to study a broad spectrum of influences. He has studied art, chemistry, biology and has been employed as a violin-maker, a prison guard, and a doctor but his true passion was always magic. Some of his first audiences in fact were his co-workers at the hospital. He would try out his various inventions on them to great success.
You may be familiar with his Angle Separation which allows the performer to secretly sort and separate the deck while apparently just running the cards from one hand to the other. You may also have seen his Laser/Snap Deal where cards dealt onto the table with an audible snap instantly disappear without a trace! And of course there is his Top Shot which allows the top card of the deck to be propelled very quickly into the other hand and arrive face-up. It can be done so fast that the card seems to appear from nowhere.
Whenever Lennart lectures you can expect incredibly strong card magic and fascinating methods that are well thought out and clearly explained. He will share hand-picked selections of his most famous creations as well as current items that are sure to delight. Prepare to learn perplexing professional magic from a living legend with a deck of cards.
