Biography Timeline


Luis de Matos was born in Maputo, Portuguese Mozambique in 1970, a Portuguese overseas province until 1975. At the age of five he moved with his parents to Portugal where the family settled in Avelar, a municipality of the city of Ansião. At age 14, he moved to Coimbra to complete his technical studies, living with his cousins.

In 2003, he was asked to cooperate in preparing the opening ceremony for the Estádio do Dragão in Porto. During that ceremony, he had bags with pieces of blue silk distributed to the audience and asked them to hold the pieces aloft simultaneous. Then, he made all the some 52,000 pieces of silk vanish, a trick that entered the Guinness Book of Records.


In 2010, in collaboration with David Britland and Marco Tempest, Luis de Matos organized The Essential Magic Conference, at that time the first online magic conference.
