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.

Belonging to the group of “New Realists,” Zhao Bo is a Chinese artist creating artwork that differs from Realism in its classical sense, depicting colorful subjects like soldiers and Communist symbols.
