The Story of Lee Hadwin, The Sleepwalking Artists Who Draws While Asleep!

Published

on

Ever experienced sleepwalking? Sleepwalking, also known as somnambulism, is when a person wakes up and walks around while still asleep. Sleepwalking is more prevalent in children than in adults, and it is usually overcome by adolescence. Sleepwalking infrequently does not always indicate a major condition or necessitate therapy. Recurrent sleepwalking, on the other hand, could indicate an underlying sleep issue.

Often sleep walks occurs when one is stressed or sleep deprived. Some occasion sleep walkers don’t even recall what they do. This case however, is peculiar.

Meet Lee Hadwin, a man who does wonders while sleepwalking. When Lee Hadwin is awake, he sees himself as a person who lacks artistic ability. While he’s sleeping, though, his artistic side comes to life, and he creates portraits, landscapes, and abstract works that only someone with exceptional artistic ability could create. Hadwin awakens from his rest, having snapped out of his art-making trance and resumed his life as a non-creative individual.

But how does he do it?

There have been stories about people who converse or even walk around their homes while sleeping. Hadwin is no exception, though his “sleep artistry” exhibits a far more intricate version of the phenomena.

When he was four years old, it all began. He was a frequent sleepwalker who would get out of bed and wander around the house. He eventually began drawing on his bedroom walls using crayons and pencils from his school backpack. He’d go back to sleep once he’d finished.

His parents were taken aback. The doctor explained, “He’s just a child sleepwalking.” “He’ll get over it.”

He, on the other hand, did not. In reality, he improved his skills. Hadwin drew three little pencil sketches of Marilyn Monroe in one night when he was 15 years old. They weren’t great, but they appeared to be the work of someone who had received some instruction, was at least 15 years old, and was awake at the time.

Hadwin has created hundreds of midnight pieces since then. They’re sometimes figurative sketches, and other times they’re abstract. He usually makes a piece a couple of times a week, however he may be limited to one every couple of months on occasion. He passed years without making anything in his early twenties.

He has subsequently built a living out of his late-night activities, referring to himself as a Sleep Artist. He creates work at an unexpected rate, yet it is consistent enough for him to sell original pieces for thousands of dollars while appearing in shows all around the world.

What’s funny is that Hadwin never had interest for arts during his school days and his highest grade in arts is a D! Hadwin never had any recollection of drawing anything he produced. Hadwin’s life was turned upside down in 2007 when he chose to have a modest exhibition in my hometown/village of Henllan in Denbighshire, North Wales, with the revenues going to a cancer hospice.

Hadwin’s painting was featured in a little item in the local newspaper. Then, by chance, a South Korean film crew took up the tale and decided to make a short documentary on him. Following this, The Sun, one of the most widely circulated newspapers in the United Kingdom, chose to publish a full-page interview with Hadwin about his art and life a few days later. His entire life altered from that day forward! Hadwin received hundreds of phone calls and television offers. That year, he decided to make a few documentaries, which sparked a lot of interest in his work in the art world. Hadwin then donates his art to a number of charity, raising awareness for those in need.

Amazing isn’t it! Who would have thought sleepwalking would turn out to be something creative. The next time you ever sleepwalking, check to see if you’ve left drawings anywhere!
