Zlwin Chew is a well known practitioner of the art magic and mentalism.

Since his early childhood he has been

fascinated by mysteries and magic, always trying to comprehend how they happen. Few years back, he joined a
magic club and was exposed to a whole new world of magic and performing art.
He then ventured further down the magical path. The love for the art of prestidigitation never left him.
When we were young and innocent, everything around us seemed magical. We awed at the rising of the sun and
the chirping birds. We were amazed at how the television works and how airplanes fly. As we grow older,
however, we start to understand how things work and logic sets in. We then lose our ability to feel amazed at
things. But Magic has the power to bring back that childhood moment in every one of us, where we can once
again be amazed and genuinely exclaim, Wow! How did you do that?!
This would be the firewood that fuels Zlwins passion and love for this beautiful Art.

Zlwin has been invited to perform personally to some of the country's most renowned and reputable
personalities. Some of them include:
- The 12th King of Malaysia, Yang di-PertuanAgong, Raja Perlis Syed Sirajuddinibni Syed Putra Jamalullail.

things out of the ordinary and walk on unchartered
territories. Zlwin started his career working for Kuala

Zlwin specializes in Mentalism, a sub-division of

Magic. Blurring the lines between reality and
imagination, the Mentalist creates illusions of mind
reading, precognition, telepathy and psychokinetic
power.Being a Mentalist, his stage repertoire
showcases a full mentalism show in which he is seen
to be able to guess correctly a random word a
spectator is thinking of, to impossibly bend metal, to
break light bulbs by just staring at them and to
accurately predict things, among many other feats.

Magic is the joy of seeing people being truly amazed and entertained.

Think, for a moment, about what makes magic special. A coin disappears, and for a split second, we're children
again. It isn't a magician's skills or top hat that captivates people: it is the moment of true astonishment. Most
moments of true astonishment are brief intervals right after an effect ends and before our rational adult minds
apply logic.
In the split second between these processes: a moment of childlike wonder.
