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.

Exhibiting widely both domestically and internationally in the second half of the 20th century, Franco Angeli was an Italian painter whose work often referenced current encompassing notions and conditions including poverty and pain. Some of his work includes Half Dollar (1966-67) and Frammenti capitolini (1964).
