Stephen Wiltshire draws NYC

1.24.13 Stephen Wiltshire

Stephen Wiltshire was once a child who was mute and did not relate to other people. At the age of three, he was diagnosed as autistic. He had no language and lived entirely in his own world. At 5, his love for drawing was discovered. He used this as a bridge to being a better communicator. His memory is so incredible that it’s compared to a camera. He can look at landscapes and memorize everything down to fine detail. He was commissioned to draw the Manhattan cityscape. It is an amazing video.
