This is part 1 of a UK documentary about artist, Stephen Wiltshire’s amazing ability to recreate detailed drawings of city landscapes from memory.
Judging from this documentary and other footage of his interactions with his family, peers and the general public, I can tell what a pleasure it would be to speak to him in person and to watch him work.
You also can’t help but feel inspired by how much Stephen has accomplished and has overcome in his life. Since his early childhood, his art became a means to overcome his difficulty to communicate with the rest of the world. And now, his autism aside, he gets to travel the world and draw so many wonderful locations!
