The British artist paints whole cities from memoryA photo from open sources

43-year-old Briton Stephen Wiltshire is considered the most unique an artist of our time, since he draws from memory, without mistake not in one detail of what he saw.

At the age of 3, he was diagnosed with savant syndrome, i.e. deviation in development, in which a person, however, has the so-called “island of genius.”

Stephen’s outstanding ability was to draw complex landscapes from memory. It is enough for a man to look once at metropolis aerial view to further depict on the canvas every building seen with an incredible degree drill down and verisimilitude.

For example, Wiltshire managed to put a whole sheet on a 6-meter sheet of paper Manhattan skyline just flying over New York at helicopter. The work of the briton are distinguished by the highest degree realism and at the same time artistry (this is far from photos), which is why there is a huge demand among collectors. By the way, many experts tried to find in the artist’s paintings at least one excess or missing window in any building, say in the background, however, their search did not crown success. Wiltshire has a truly photographic memory.

Interestingly, Stephen spoke only at age 5, and his first the word was paper. Parents gave their son a clean sheet and a ballpoint pen, after which the boy is drawn for several hours, in resulting in an accurate image of the London station St. Pancras, where the baby was in passing only once.
