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.

Starting out by making animal figures out of clay as a child, Manuel Jiménez Ramírez later turned to wood carvings, creating colorful animal portrayals, human figures, masks, as well as paintings. His works can be found in many collections, especially in the United States.
