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?

Harald Stoffers is a German artist who began creating his brut art in the adult psychiatric institution, where he would first write a single word on a small piece of paper, dispensing it around to the random people. During the time, those little notes turned into long letters he addressed to his dear mummy. Stoffers’ letters developed a structure of constant repetitions that exist in nature, so every line was aligned with the preceding one, emulating thus a form of wave movements, wood grain or rock strata.
