Stephen Wiltshire is an artist with autism who draws extremely lifelike, accurate and detailed cityscapes completely from memory, sometimes after having only a brief look. Last year he made an 18 foot long drawing of the entire New York skyline after he spent just 20 minutes in a helicopter overhead.

He’s also made panorama’s of Rome, Tokyo, Dubai, London, and a bunch of other major cities around the world. Stephen was born mute, learning to speak around the age of 9, mostly encouraged by having his artist materials taken away so he would have to ask for them. Have a look at the links for more info on this incredible man.
