The fantastic world of the famous Greek painter Spiros Gelekas from the island of Corfu with his super-realistic color palette meets, for the first time in Greece, the fantastic "universe" of the great J.R.R. Tolkien, writer of Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Silmarilion. Spiros adores the world of fantasy, thus the world of Salvador Dali, Roger Dean and J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien's world are the subject of his painting from 2016 and on. The year 2018 brought him the worldwide recognition he needed and his works were exhibited next to Salvador's Dali and Picasso in Asia. He entered in the list of the best 100 painters in the international competition "The Global Art Awards", and was selected to be included in the encyclopedia of "Global Art freaks" in 2019.
