Luka attended the first years of elementary school in Zagreb and the second part of elementary school in two French towns: Auxerre and Cannes. He acquired secondary school education in 8th General Education Grammar School “Tituš Brezovački“ in Zagreb.
The love for the art of magic was passed to Luka from his father, the actor Ivica, whose theatre roles sometimes included magic tricks.
The key moment determining his professional life happened shortly after Luka’s 16th birthday. Namely, on Easter 1995, he received a gift from his father, VHS tapes (recording medium at that time) with performances of the world’s best magician of that time, David Coperfield, and Luka simply couldn’t stop watching the tapes for days. He was fascinated with the art of magic, tricks, secrets, illusions, spotlights, but most of all, he was fascinated by the fact that people were laughing and were happy during the show. At that moment Luka felt an inner call and love for that profession and he knew that that’s what he wanted to do in his life. From that day on, his love for the art of magic grew with every day.
Not even a year later, at the age of almost 17, on 24 January 1996, Luka Vidović had his first public appearance in the lobby of the theatre “Teatar itd“ in Zagreb.
Already during the next year, in his final year in secondary school, he had several appearances on national television.
Immediately after secondary school graduation, in September 1997, he enrols in the double major study programme of French language and Phonetics at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb. However, at the end of his first year of study, in summer 1998, he loses interest for continuing the study of these programmes and leaves the Faculty.
In the same summer, on 21 June 1998, the 19-year-old Luka had his first solo show in the discotheque “The Best” in Zagreb.
After that summer, and his first two-months tour for the hotel chain „Arenaturist“ in Istria (Croatia), he was driven by the desire to improve his training and skills in his stage performance.
Since, at that time, in Croatia there was no possibility of an official study of the art of magic, and feeling that the stage is his only and true vocation, he decided to study acting, recognizing that this study would secure him most benefits in the profession he had chosen. Therefore, in September 1998, he took the entrance exam at the “Academy of Dramatic Art” in Zagreb, which he passed at first attempt.
He was studying and working as a magician at the same time.
He had his first big success at the second year of study, on 12 March 2000 and 16 April 2000, when both his public solo shows in “Gavella Drama Theatre” in Zagreb were sold out. Luka considers this to be the official start of his professional career.
After that two shows, Luka decided to continue with the art of magic on a professional basis, which was followed by an unstoppable rise and he was engaged by renowned Croatian and global companies throughout Croatia.
In his successful professional career Luka performed for market leaders such as: “Coca – Cola”, “Samsung“, “Nokia“, “Sony Ericsson“, “Siemens“, “Renault“, “Citroen“, “Suzuki“, “Toyota“, “Nivea“, “DM“, “American Express“, “Diners Club International“, “AmCham“, “British American Tobacco“, “Johnson & Johnson“, “Vaillant“, “Vipnet“, “HT“, “Zagreb Brewery“, “Kraš“, “Belupo“, “Pliva“, “Merkur“, “Uniqa Insurance“ etc.
Luka is a frequent guest on the Croatian national television “HRT”, where he performed in several renowned TV shows such as „Dressing room“, “Goleo“, “Eight floor“, “Željka Ogresta and guests“, “Seventh night“, “Life is beautiful“, “Dancing with the Stars“, “Derby“, “On home ground“, “I can do this“ and he also played the supporting role of a magician in the movie about the Croatian writer August Šenoa.
During his career he was engaged, on a regular basis, at all major events in Croatia, such as: “The Night of the AdEaters”, “Split Festival”, “New Year’s Party for kids at Ban Jelačić Square”, “Golden Kuna”, “Croatian Theatre Awards”, “Tourism Day”, “Snow Queen Trophy”, “Who“ (for World Health Organization, attended by Mr Stjepan Mesić, at that time the President of the Republic of Croatia), “World Water Day”, “Chocofest”, “Science Picnic”, “Kids Fair”, various promotions, for e.g. “Brain Games”, movie premieres, birthdays of shopping malls and many other.
2010 receives the status „Superbrands Croatia“.
2013 performs in Monte Carlo for His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
In addition to his native Croatian language, Luka is also fluent in French and English. Because of his knowledge of both above quoted languages, during his career Luka was often engaged in the French and British Embassy and in companies with these native languages.
He issued three editions of “Luka’s Magic Box”, and all were sold out.
He also cooperates with many Croatian theatres, where he was the consultant for scene magic: for e.g. 2013 in “Višnjik”, in “Croatian National Theatre”.
Every year he performs in more than 150 shows both for children and for grownups.
Luka lives in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.
