Gustavo Vierini

Magician & Mentalist

A professional magician since 1998 and TV Star Magician in Brazil, Gustavo Vierini is skilled in illusion in all its forms, from classic magic to mentalism (the illusion of mind reading, metal bending, and paranormal stunts). He has received numerous awards throughout his career, including being named “The Best Mentalist” in the Oscars of Magic. He also was entered into the Guinness World Records 2016.

His career has spanned more than ten countries on four continents, and he has many TV appearances to his credit. He has even made presentations to other professional magicians, and famed illusionist Uri Geller himself has hailed Gustavo as the “the Brazilian Uri Geller.”

Be sure to be aboard as he brings his unique blend of magic and humor aboard select sailings of The Gauguin.
