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 as an Abstract Expressionist, Tom Blackwell turned towards photorealism under the influence of pop art, depicting various scenes of urban life from the cities across the globe.
