Film Festival Aspires To Put ABQ on the Map
by Kelly Williams, DPW West Mar 14 2013 A SLEEP artist is looking for a Welsh business to sponsor him as he takes on America.
Lee Hadwin from Henllan near Denbigh is preparing to share his extraordinary talent for the first time on US soil at Festival Experience in June.
He’s among many talented artists to be lined up by Albuquerque Film & Media Experience and will be representing the UK.
The 38-year-old has been described by the art world and Edinburgh Sleep Clinic as “unique’ for his ability to draw intricate portraits, figures and landscapes in his sleep.
Lee will be performing exclusively at the festival in a 45-minute show in New Mexico on June 8 with hopes to turn it into a full production alongside world-renowned pianist Joshua James Field.
Lee said: “To be invited to AFME this year is such an honour for me. I am thrilled that the city of Albuquerque will be hosting this truly amazing event, being USA’s second largest city for arts.
“I can’t think of a better place to appear and perform in front of a live audience. I know this will truly be a spectacular festival.”
Lainie Quirk and Ivan Wiener, co-founders of the AFME said: “We are very excited to have Lee Hawdin and Joshua James Field here, representing the UK and the art/music mediums.
“Lee is an extraordinary artist with such a different art form. To hear of sleepwalkers is one thing, to learn of Lee’s gift is another.”
Anyone wishing to sponsor Lee is urged to contact him via his contact page.
