Paolo Carta is considered one of the most eclectic and talented artists. From an early age he studied music, dance, acting, illusionism and art in many forms: thanks to all this he is the interpreter, producer and director of his own shows, of which he personally takes care of every aspect, from music to scenography, from staging to directing.
He frequently offers consultancy for theme parks, famous show business personalities (including Arturo Brachetti), illusionists, TV productions, as well as international musicals (including Disney’s Mary poppins and many others) and movies. He is also a designer of original and unique illusions all over the world.
He is a performer in various visual arts including Magic, Sand Art, Light Painting, Laserman and has performed all over the world in theme parks, cruise ships and in the most important theaters.
He is the inventor of new visual arts including Sandow (the fusion between sand art and Chinese shadows made with the body of agile dancers) and Light Painting Show, and he is the first in the world to present these shows of his original conception.
Thanks to all this he was the Artistic Director of Gardaland and received numerous international awards for his shows, including the Knight’s honor for artistic merits in the field of entertainment.
“Paolo Carta is a poet with light hands, capable of drawing on the clouds, speaking to the amazed eyes of children and touching the cynical heart of adults. Paolo Carta’s artistic creation is never limited to surprise and ephemeral. All his world imagined and created with wisdom by his bare hands evokes the deepest problems of our present through shadows in constant metamorphosis and giant sand paintings. Fantasy and wonder guide us to the sometimes touching, sometimes poetic, sometimes raw and deep reflection His work excites us through various libels of language and everyone, from the most innocent to the wisest, we remain open-mouthed asking for more.”
Arturo Brachetti (actor, transformist and director)
“When I see a Paolo Carta show, the thing that most amazes me is to discover something extremely valid that I didn’t know before, despite my vast knowledge of the sector. And this beyond the impeccable workmanship and strong poetics that characterize his works. The other professionals that cause me the same effect are, in the world, only David Copperfield, Arturo Brachetti and some Broadway directors.”
Federico Bellone (director and producer)
