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.

Establishing himself as a specialist in large-scale religious paintings, Insho Domoto had painted over 600 religious pieces on the ceilings of Buddhist temples in the Kansai area. Starting his own school for painting, he even taught as a professor at the Kyoto Municipal Special School of Painting.
