Jeson Zheng went to the United States to study magic at his early age. In 1995, he became the youngest guest performer of “Magic Castle”—the highest honor for magicians in USA. During his study of large illusion and magic in USA, he designed illusion magic for David Copperfield and performed in Las Vegas.

From 2005 to 2009, he studied TV and Film Production and Management in The Central Academy of Drama in Beijing. As he learned more about stage techniques and film special effects, he started to research application of magic and special film effects in reality. During his college years, he became Board Member of Linfair Group, which has the main business scope of designing theme parks and shows, applying illusion and special effects to the packaging of stage stories and adding more entertaining, immersive and interactive fun to the stage. Then he directly joined the founding of Tianmeng Cultural Investment Co., Ltd. and participated in the executing and managing of the company. He gradually accumulated important resources in the cultural industry. The company mainly integrates various cultural pan-entertainment projects, gradually creates pan-entertainment IPs with traditional Chinese culture and repositions the lifestyles and habits of Chinese people.

In May, 2017, he founded the NOVAEX Cultural Development Group. After years of practice and in-depth analysis of cultural industry, he put forward the disruptive “OinO” mode in the hope of bringing human back to the emotional world and redefining new coordinates of people`s entertainment and cultural life in the time of rapid internet growth.

As he studied the cultural industry further, he led a team to successfully create the Huzhou Silk Town in Zhejiang in 2016, which became a model of operating thematic towns.

Applying magic tricks and illusion scenes to theme parks

Jeson Zheng is always committed to building the “Disneyland of Chinese genes” in his exploration of how to combine large illusion magics and theme parks.

Jeson Zheng has always kept and implemented the notion of “Creating an image of dream before your eyes to inspire your souls”, which is implemented in his design of entertainment centers, theme parks, cultural and commercial complex and shows. When young Jeson Zheng interprets magic and illusion, he views himself as a disseminator of “passing on dreams and inspiring souls”. As an illusion producer who has dreams, insights, love and achievements, he gave up the career of being an illusion magic star. Instead, he is committed to using wonderful design which makes every audience feel themselves make miracle happen. The theme parks and entertainment centers designed by him must surpass culture itself. What conquers you is not necessarily magicians and illusionists! What attracts you can be the magic or illusion itself.

Applying magic illusion to the scientific and effective planning and management of real estates

The marketing strategies of Chinese real estate market are fundamentally similar and not creative enough. The VIP service customized for high-end groups shall highlight the significance of personalization. Magic can be integrated into theme parks through smart technology. Culture can become part of environmental design and bring new vitality to the real estate market.

Jeson Zheng developed real estate projects with major Chinese real estate companies. Real estates, life, entertainment and other projects can be organically combined in technological methods. This is the pioneer of epoch-making Chinese cultural real estate model—complex of thematic culture and art.

Creating the world first “OinO” operation mode and making the new entertainment life solutions of technology and human emotional bonds

In the time of booming hi-tech, smart phones, computers and other devices bring many conveniences and huge changes to our life. People have less and less time to communicate with others and feel more and more indifferent towards each other. Jeson Zheng believes human should always pass on the consistent emotional values. How to guarantee the continuity of human emotional civilization? How to pass on the true Chinese values? This is also why Jeson Zheng founded the NOVAEX Cultural Development Group.

The mission of NOVAEX Cultural Development Group is to build the emotional bonds between technology and human. In the era of smart technology and AI, the gradually fading emotional bonds between people should become closer and be passed on forever.
