Who is he and how he became famous?

Stephen Wiltshire, born April 24, 1974, is a British artist known for his ability to draw landscapes from his memory after seeing them once.

Wilshire was born in London and at age 3 he was diagnosed with autism, and after two years he was sent to a special school.

Arrived there, he fully expressed his desire to draw, although he only learned to speak at the age of nine.

At the age of seven, Stephen was fascinated by building sketches, and at age 10 he created sketches that have come to be called the London Alphabet, representing places from London.

It is enough to take a single shot at the subject and then he creates a beautiful and detailed picture.

Despite he has autism, he draws entire cities just using his memory.

For example, he drew in detail 4 square miles of London after a single flight with a helicopter.

In December, after a 20 minutes flight, Stephen spent a week drawing a 10-meters long drawing.

We can find on his list cities like: Frankfurt, Madrid , Dubai , Jerusalem and London.
