I started out in the world of magic when I was 9 years old , and in my first years in contact with illusionism I was alone , because in my city , León , there were no magicians and I had to discover the secrets of this art by reading books.
At that moment in my life , I had lots of questions , but no answers.
It was a very slow learning process with lots of difficulties ; maybe that was what made my imagination grow in an effort to find future creativity , which no doubt has opened lots of doors throughout my career.
When I was 18 , magic became my profession.
In 1980 my first international show was born , under the name “El Perchero” , ( The Hanger ).
In 1990 came “ La Mujer Invisible “ , ( The Invisible Woman ).
In 1991 , and coinciding with my participation in the World Magic Congress FISM in Lausanne , I changed my stage name from “ Alex “ to my real name , Juan Mayoral.
In 1992 I began to attend conferences around the world for professional magicians in order to market my creations.
From 1994 I started production and management of international magic conventions and festivals.
In 2009 at the World Magic Congress I presented my new creation , “ Meteors “.
In 2012 , as fire and light had been my inspiration to create tricks since my childhood , I held the premiere of my show “ Fire”.
