Welsh - Australian Artist Lee Hadwin has been described by the Art world and the World’s media as “UNIQUE”. With no training, and no inclination in his 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 writing a book, Lee has discovered a global demand for his work.
Lee believes all art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
In many artistic works inspired by the Greek Mythology, Hypnos was represented as a gentle young man, the god of sleep, whose father was the deity of darkness Erebus and mother Nys, the deity of night. Hypnos was father himself to another powerful deity Morpheus, deity of dreams so it’s not hard to understand why he commanded such great power over the mortals and immortals alike. As we draw to present day we are still perhaps no closer to understanding these fundamental elements of our lives.
