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.

Born in 1964, Frank Bauer studied as a masterstudent of Gerhard Richter at the Staatliche Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. Creating hyperrealistic paintings, he finds his subjects in the everyday scenes of his surrounding environment and friends.
