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.

Greatly influenced by pop art as well as his personal travels, Patrick Procktor was an English artist who mostly painted using watercolor, oil, and acrylic. He became a member of the Royal Academy in 1996, and his painting The Guardian Readers can be found on one of Elton John’s album covers.
