Capturing the Magic in Paint

Richard (Rick) Heath 


For 35 years, Rick Heath was the principal artist for Le Grand David and his own Spectacular Magic Company, the world's longest running resident stage magic ensemble, that performed at the 1920 Cabot Street Cinema Theatre in Beverly, Massachusetts. During that time, he specialized in the painting of magical illusions, portraits, murals, and theatrical scenery for which he was recognized with specially created awards for visual art in magic. His work during that period is now highly valued by collectors.

The company's final performance was on May 27, 2012. After much deliberation, he embarked on a new venture, aptly named Magician With A Paintbrush, concentrating on the custom construction and painting of magic illusions for magicians and collectors, as well as portraiture and the production of fine art.
