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.

An Irish-born artist, Joy Gerrard practice has expanded in the recent years from drawings to large paintings. Focused on depicting crowds from a view of a tall building or a helicopter, hundreds of brush strokes faithfully portray known images from the newspaper and internet.
