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.

A noted Spanish painter and illustrator, Emile Grau was known for using thick layers of color over the canvas, portraying posh parties, seascapes, as well as portraits and nudes. His illustration pieces were included in several books, leading to an honorable mention in Pitsburg, at the Carnegie International exhibition.
