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.

William Gear was a prominent painter who lived during the 20th century, visiting several European countries as a part of his travelling scholarship. He was awarded on several occasions during his lifetime and became a member of the Royal Birmingham society of artists in 1966.
