Stephen Wiltshire - the autistic genius

While going through the Times supplement on Friday 26th of February, I read this piece about autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire and became engrossed in the story.

Stephen has become famous for drawing amazing detailed cityscapes from memory. The pictures are amazing and we will definitely visit his gallery in Pall Mall, London next time we visit there.

Check out the video clip below of him drawing the Tokyo cityscape from memory after a helicopter ride.

You can still get his book 'The cities' which is now out of print on Amazon. Another book "Floating Cities" was on the Sunday Times bestseller list.
