Could you draw a picture of a city from memory—after only a 20-minute helicopter ride over it?
Diagnosed at age three with autism, Stephen Wiltshire showed a keen interest in drawing by age five. His early drawings focused on animals and cars, but he quickly became fascinated by the landmark buildings around his home in London, and created detailed architectural sketches. Thanks to a teacher at the Queensmill School in West London, Stephen’s drawings were entered in children’s art competitions, garnering him first local, then nationwide interest by the time he was eight.
Now an adult, Stephen exhibits his work all over the world. Discover more about his artistic response to his surroundings, as well as his musical talent, in The Stephen Wiltshire Gallery
