Guy Draws New York City From Memory

Stephen Wiltshire born 24 April 1974 is a British architectural artist who has been diagnosed with autism. He is known for his drawings from memory a landscape after seeing it just once. He is most famous for his drawing of New York City from a helicopter view. What makes the drawing so unique is that he drew it right from memory after viewing it for only 20 minutes! He copied the skyline onto an 18 foot canvas.


Autistic people are very unique and they add difference to the human society. The mind of an autistic person if set up in a completely different way than an average person. They usually lack social needs. Yet they usually have a compensated skill. For Stephen it would be a photographic memory. I love drawing cities but I usually make the city up that I draw. It is so cool to see someone draw an entire city like that!
