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.

Though self thought in the field of sculpture, Giacomo Manzu was a renowned artist who even went on to become a professor of sculpture. Celebrated both in the east and in the west, he was recognized by the Western museums and collectors as much as he was in Russia.
