Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

Nicknamed Apao, the Taiwanese artist Chen Chao-Pao attended Taiwan National University of Arts where his natural affinity towards color and form was recognized. Fascinated by Western art and European culture, he moved to Paris in 1983 and had exhibited widely ever since.
