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.

Gaining the attention of the public in 1967 with an exhibition at the Galerie du Dragon in Paris, Vladimir Veličković was one of the most prominent contemporary Serbian painters. Exhibiting widely ever since 1951 until his death, he was awarded with the highest French award in the field of culture and art: Commandeur dans l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
