CORFU. His journeys to Asia began in 2018 with participation in group exhibitions alongside famous artists.

The international Corfiot artist Spyros Gelekas is returning to China, this time with his first solo exhibition titled "Everything in Hope Mansion is Beyond Imagination," organised by Hope Mansion (real estate) and the art company Mo2art in the city of Chengdu in the Sichuan province, also known for the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. The exhibition is taking place from November 18 to 26.

His journeys to Asia as an artist began in 2018 with his participation in the Foshan Art Fair festival in Foshan. The same year, three more exhibitions followed in Beijing, Kunming, and Dongxiang, showcasing works alongside those of Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso, with the climax being in Beijing. Three representations of Greece followed in 2020-22, notably the International Watercolour Art Exhibition at the Guangzhou Art Museum, as he was selected by the state committee among the elite of 170 international artists.

Spyros Gelekasis has maintained a long-term contract since 2017 with the International Artist Exchange Association and Mo2art.
