About David London

AAA_David_London_ArtscapeDavid London combines magic with storytelling, comedy, surrealism, and that which cannot be defined, to create original magical experiences unlike any you have encountered before.

David discovered that he was a magician at the age of seven, and has since spent over 20 years trying to figure out just what that means. He has created five original theatrical magic productions, including Cerebral Sorcery, …Art of Dreams, and the Creative Spirit Seance, and authored eight manuscripts related to magic and illusion, including Daydreams, Borderland State, and Imagining the Imagination.

David regularly performs his unique style of magic at theaters, museums, galleries, and festivals, and has presented his shows, workshops and lectures in over 1/3 of the United States.

David is on a lifelong journey to spread wonder, magic, and play across the universe.
