Fabrini, from his real name, Fabio Roberto, was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in December, 1964. Still young
he was sure of his artistic gifts, which ones? He was not sure. When he was 14, he started to work in a
factory, which made magic products, and at 16 he was already a professional magician. At 17, he met by
chance another magician, Vik, his real name Vicente Pandolfi. That evening they were hired by mistake for
the same show. As a result, the partnership VIK and FABRINI was born.
In Brazil, they worked in the most prestigious places, including two seasons in one of the most reputed
cruise liners – Cruzeiros Costa. At the age of 23, in 1988, they decided to participate together in the most
important contest in magic – the FISM. They won the highest award in Magic. This award was the key to an
international artistic career away from his home country. Other awards have followed it. In 1992 he won the
Golden Lion Award in Las Vegas, such award is part of an annual contest organized by Siegfried and Roy. In
1995, in Paris, he won the double Golden Mandrake, one for best magic show and the other as a special

aspect, is that the Art of Drawing and inspired by the world he lives begins making Magic cartoons, he
publishes a book in Paris by Editions George Proust called Magiccartoon.
From there his imagination has no limits, and passes to paint on canvas, the technique is acryl, as to be
always traveling, needed a fast drying. Portrays the universe which he is part of, that means Circus,
Cabarets, Varietes etc .... his characters can be inspired by artists already known or not.
In 2005 he is invited by the Director of the Princess Grace Theatre in Monaco, to realize the poster of
Monte Carlo Magic Star, this poster has a commemorative postage stamp, becomes the first Bazilian to have
such a distinction, alongside this event he also have a exhibition of his paintings in this same theater, others
