Growth course

Road to success

Curiosity about magic

Apart from drawing, Fu Tenglong likes to listen to his father telling magic stories. One of his favorite stories is the underwater escape performed by American magicians. Xiao Tenglong always wants to try it himself. At that time, only seven or eight years old and a group of small partners came to the Yangtze River. He took advantage of the high tide to dive into the water. His mother learned that Xiao Tenglong was very worried when he came to the river. She came to the river with her sister to look for him. She found him under a cabin, which also showed us his curiosity about magic.

Magicians reveal special functions: "Master" can do anything magicians can do

Fu Tenglong was very naughty and active when he was young. Not even in school. The students gave him a nickname "Shaking Fan". Once, while the teacher was writing on the blackboard, Fu Tenglong picked up the big top on his small desk. All the students in the class were enjoying themselves secretly. The teacher turned around and saw Fu Tenglong sitting there with good manners, just like nothing had happened. Make the whole class laugh. The head teacher's home visited him, but he saw that the naughty Fu Tenglong was drawing quietly. It was a bitter summer, and Fu Tenglong was still wearing thick clothes in autumn and winter. Painting with great concentration. It turned out that he was helping his father sort out magic materials. Fu Tenglong's father, Fu Tian, is a famous magician in China. Most of the illustrations and illustrations in my father's magic theory books were written by Xiao Tenglong. Since then, the teacher's views on Fu Tenglong have changed, and gradually fell in love with him. Painting was Fu Tenglong's greatest hobby when he was young. His greatest dream at that time was to become a painter, not a magician.

Following the teacher's recommendation, Fu Tenglong entered the Children's Palace Art Group of China Welfare Association and Chen Yifei as a small partner. But later, for various reasons, Fu Tenglong failed to develop in the field of painting, but he never gave up his love for painting. Later, he combined painting with magic to create a magic program "Calligraphy and Painting Magic", which stirred up the whole country in the 1980s. 。 He also gradually became China's "magic king" - the king of magic.

Achievement honor

Fu Tenglong's first stage performance was accidental - it was a magic trick performed by his father and sister. After her sister got into a prop box, she opened the lid and turned it into a lamb! Just before the performance, my sister suddenly fell ill. Dad was very anxious. The rescue was like fighting a fire. Xiao Tenglong on the other side said that he would not let me try, but at that time Fu Tenglong had never received his father's training, could he? It is necessary to know that the change of the dark passage in the box can only be accomplished by some flexibility training and skills. Time was running out, so Dad had to give Tenglong a try. Before going on stage, my mother dressed Tenglong up as a little girl like her sister. The performance was very successful! The audience didn't realize that the magical little girl was actually a naughty little boy.

Since the day when Fu Tenglong stepped on the magic stage, he spent many nights thinking under the lamp. For decades, he invented and created more than 100 kinds of new magic, and participated in CCTV Spring Festival Gala many times. Fu Tenglong often said that magic performance is actually an intellectual contest between the audience and the magician. Only by constantly introducing new people and magic can we win the audience. Due to the enhancement of economic strength (in order to better develop the magic cause, Fu Tenglong and enterprises jointly formed a new joint-stock theatre troupe, and the whole magic program was conceived and packaged entirely, named Happy Magic Cube). At present, Fu Tenglong is designing some large props and creating some large-scale magic (can ask him to introduce the demonstration live). He is going to tell the world about it. The best magicians have challenged to give Chinese magic a place in the world. This is Fu Tenglong's wish today.

Since the day Fu Tenglong stepped on the stage of magic, he has been devoting himself to making magic bring wisdom and happiness to the audience. After years of hard thinking and exploration, he has invented many new magic tricks, of which the large-scale special "Happy Rubik's Cube" is one of his masterpieces. Under the combination of sound, light and electricity, in the perfect combination of scientific and technological means and traditional art, magic becomes elegant and graceful, full of various scientific suspense, contains innumerable mysteries, and then enters the palace of art.

December 28, 2017, was selected as the fifth batch of national intangible cultural heritage representative project representative successors recommended list.

Representative works

Their "History of Chinese Acrobatics" has been translated into many languages and published in Japan. Fu Tenglong has published more than 100 papers and popular science articles, including 20 monographs such as "Chinese Magic", "Magic kaleidoscope", "Acrobatic Magic Clown", "Magic World".


Take snakes from space, drink from empty glasses, move your mind... "Qigong Master" Wang Lin's special functions declared in the form of magic performances make people in magic circles, such as Fu Tenglong, known as "China's Magic King", very angry: "Qigong that can be performed is false, just like a magic performance of Qigong, and magic can never be used to cure diseases."

On the morning of August 1, 2013, Fu Tenglong, the head of Fujiaban, a magician known as "China's Devil King", and members of Fujiaban, together with him, held a "truth" conference in the National Convention Center through on-site performances of related magic in order to reveal some of the so-called Masters'magic skills and special functions in society. "Wang Lin's so-called Shengong is only the lowest entry-level magic, which some magicians disdain to change. "

Mr. Fu Tenglong said that while conveying positive energy to the society, the live performance will face up to the truth of the facts - the special function does not exist in fact, and the special function is magic at all!
