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.

Tom Palmore is an American painter usually depicting animals in a surreal setting, using acrylic and oil to portray them in a great detail. Often witty and imaginative, his works tend to take on a comic note, as he puts portraits of animals against a background displaying a wallpaper of a different animal.
