Incredibly Detailed Drawings Of Panoramic Cityscapes, Made Entirely From Memory



UK-based autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire is endowed with the amazing gift of a photographic memory, which enables him to produce these incredibly detailed drawings of cities after observing them for just a short time.

The talented artist, one of the most renowned in the UK today, has drawn complex and remarkably accurate representations of bustling cities—from Dubai to Shanghai—purely from his memory alone.

Wiltshire is also the first artist to be invited to The View from The Shard—Western Europe’s tallest building—to capture London’s constantly changing skyline.

Watch the artist reproduce the New York City’s skyline on paper in the video below, after flying over the city in a helicopter for just a few hours.
