John-Paul Gibbs Arts / The Sleeping Artist

"The sleeping artist refers to my subconscious and the art is mainly comprised of pop surrealist work. I draw from many inspirational figures from video directors such as Chris Cunningham to surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali. I am a Post Graduate from UWE Bristol and a working fine artist."
