Dirk Losander (b. 1969) is a professional magician and inventor.


He became interested in magic at the age of eight years old, when he was taught by a female magician friend of his grandfather.

With the advice of his wife, Luna Shimada, he started to portray a modern wizard for his stage acts by growing his out his hair and wearing a long overcoat. His mentors have been Finn Jon and Salvano. He has become known for his routines involving levitations include bubbles and tables. His "Losander's Floating Table" has been incorporated into many magicians' repertoire.[1]
