New York Skyline From Memory

I have been in awe of artist Stephen Wiltshire’s work since first seeing it several years ago. Stephen is autistic and his condition allows him to see the world differently. He understands and remembers places, skylines, cityscapes in ways few others could even comprehend. Last year UBS commissioned Stephen to draw a cityscape of New York City, and this video shows his process and the resulting artwork. During the video some audio of his sister talking about him and is artwork is overlaid, which gives an added context of his creativity and also his personality and profound need to draw. She describes his drawing as if it were water or air for regular people.
