Welsh Australian Artist Lee Hadwin has been described by the Art world and the Edinburgh Sleep Clinic as “unique”. With no training, no talent and no inclination in waking life to be an artist Lee draws and sketches portraits, figures and landscapes in his sleep.
‘Sleep-drawing’ since the age of four it wasn’t until he was 14-15 years old that his nocturnal talents as an artist began to emerge. He recalls: That during his early teens the drawings became a lot more intricate and had more depth to them.
Lee draws or scribbles on walls, tables, clothes, discarded newspapers - with pens, crayons, paints and coal - anything he can get his hands on. After all these years he is prepared and has his sketch books and materials scattered around his apartment. His work over the years has become more detailed, more profound.
Now, with interest from galleries around the world , TV offers, and talks about producing a stage show Lee has discovered a global demand for his work.
