A true artist

As the rennowned magicians Penn & Teller said of him
in their own TV Show:

“The best Sleight of Hand artist we´ve ever seen.”

Javi´s sleight of hand with cards is absolutely amazing but, even more important, his charming personality, his compositions (than not tricks) are of a beauty never seen before.

Javi have given his entire life to the Art of Magic in its biggest meaning,
quitting from his successful career as Creative Director to be a full-time artist.
