Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Fergal Stapleton is a British contemporary artist who, according to some critics produces a rare insight into the difference between images and objects, and how mere junk changes into art… They’re inches away, but seem to inhabit a distant, unattainable parallel universe. Stapleton has been an occasional lecturer on the MA Fine Art programs at Goldsmiths College, University of London, Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, Birmingham City University, and the Slade School of Fine Art. He has also contributed to the art review section of TimeOut magazine. Stapleton is additionally a director of V22 Foundation. Stapleton is additionally the author of a novel titled After the Death of the Goat God (Key Principles in History 2).
