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.

Gustave Singier was a Belgian-born non-figurative painter inspired and moved by Charles Walch. Active as part of the Paris School of Lyrical Abstraction of the time, Singier exhibited in numerous Parisian Salons after 1936, which was the turning point for the artist’s career.
