Styles of card magic

I’ve been thinking about this recently – there are a few performers who have a very definite style to how they perform. There’s the crazy Juan Tamariz style, the messy Lennart Green style,smooth and sophisticated Guy Hollingworth etc. Magicians tend to try and imitate a performer they admire and end up mimicking them in an odd way. One style which I’ve never seen anyone imitating is Jean Pierre Vallarinos suave style –

I really like his card magic – he adds plenty of flourishy moves but they flow and seem to work.

    Agreed. His ‘Flight Switch’ (used in the sandwich express video) is great, i use it all the time.
