Highly acclaimed by his peers as “one of the most unique acts in the world of magic today,” said R.G. Smith, Executive Show Director of The Society of American Magicians; Arthur Trace is only the eighth magician in the history of magic to be awarded The International Brotherhood of Magicians Gold Medal. In 2006 he became a FISM award winner at the World Championships of Magic, and in 2007 Arthur was awarded the “Best Cabaret Magic” award at The World Magic Awards. In 2015 and 2016 the Academy of Magical Arts nominated Arthur as the Stage Magician of The Year, and in 2018 the same organization nominated him as Parlour Magician of The Year.
Being recognized amongst his peers has brought many opportunities, some of which include: appearing on national television broadcasts in seven countries, touring China with the WuQiao Circus, performing for Prince Albert II of Monaco at The Princess Grace Theatre, and producing his show aboard The Queen Mary. Recently, Arthur had the honor of headlining The Magical Mystery Show at the legendary Wintergarten Varieté in Berlin, Germany and at The House of Magic in Macau.
During his show imaginative plots are expressed through magic that is, often, perfectly synced to music and sound effects. Great for young and old alike, each year he brings his artful deception to corporate and theater audiences worldwide. Watch Arthur perform and find out why Kevin Pang of the Chicago Tribune called him “one of magic’s bona fide superstars!”
When not touring, Arthur lives in Los Angeles with his wife Melissa and dog Ava.
