Incredible work by artist Stephen Wiltshire

Mandy Feder, my managing editor, drew my attention to this article after a friend posted it to her wall on Facebook: Autistic artist draws 18ft picture of New York skyline from memory, published in October 2009 by the Mail Online.

Stephen Wiltshire created an 18-foot picture of New York from memory, after just 20 minutes in a helicopter gazing at the panorama.

The article includes several photos detailing the stages of Wiltshire’s work in replicating the New York skyline. Wiltshire has also created sketches of Tokyo, Rome, Frankfurt, Madrid, Dubai, Jerusalem and Hong Kong according to the article.
