“”Pantaleon’ s work catalyzes the inner world of the viewer who decides to let himself sweep away. It is all about a personal descent with a constant request for improvement, a return in a tactile universe of doubtless beauty. Pantaleon’ s paintings include everything like the visible side of an empirical theosophism. In contrast to a reified reality, he suggests a bright dreamscape in which awe, desire and love act as one. Ultimately the liberating potential of imagination.” STEFANIDIS, Art Historian – Curator of the National Gallery (http://theodorospantaleon.gr/en/biography.html)
