“You fooled us!” -Penn & Teller
“One of the most creative people in the world. Everything that he does is well thought out, very clever and usually so far out of the box you would never think of the method. I love pretty much everything Mathieu does” -Chris Kenner

Take a deck of cards from it's box, instantly shrink the box flat, then make all the cards slowly disappear until you're left with only the four aces, which he'll place back into the flat box.
A perfect prediction where the spectator shuffles, decides on a card, and it matches a message in a bottle.
Plus, he'll also explain his routine where a stretched hairband is "frozen in time"... stretched out... and slowly shrinks back down to its normal condition.
Weird, visual, fun, unexpected, AND practical... these are the kinds of great magic ideas that you will learn from Mathieu Bich.
Who is he?
Mathieu Bich is a magician, and has probably always been one… After self teaching magic for a few years, he met Dominique Duvivier who gave him creation lessons for over 8 years. This will transform Mathieu’s vision of magic, as he was mainly focussed on technique; Dominique Duvivier taught him the processes and methods to invent tricks, and to also become a magic creator.
Since then Mathieu has constantly been creating new magic using original concepts and routines generally based on new principles, or unexpected methods.
In 1998 he presented his first lecture which was an instant success. Since then he has presented it more than 50 times all around the world. Mathieu published some of his creations in the biggest magic magazines: Magic (USA), Chanel One (USA), Le Magicien (France), MagicSeen (UK), Magicus (France), Pegasus (Germany), Arcanes (France), Evocation (China)...
In 2003 he won the FISM Invention championship.
Several TV channels required Mathieu’s services, in France as well as abroad. In 2007 Mathieu collaborated with Nintendo on the interactive magic game "Master of Illusions" and sold one of his tricks to the Japanese firm TENYO. In 2008 he worked as a magic consultant for David Blaine the famous American magician, who performed one of Mathieu’s creations during his show on the ABC channel.
In 2011 HE FOOLED Penn & Teller on their TV Show "Fool Us".
