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.

Having studied tradition Chinese painting at the Jiangsu Institute of Chinese Painting, Shen Qin became an influential ink artist during the New Wave movement in the 1980s.
