Stephen Wiltshire is an architectural autistic savant artist and is known for his ability to draw a landscape after seeing it just once. He studied Fine Art at City & Guilds Art College. His work is popular all over the world, and is held in a number of important collections. Stephen is currently in Sydney, Australia.
He simply absorbs any architectural and or street-scape he visually inspects. You'd also have to wonder if he stores in his memory every drawing he ever made or whether he wipes the hard drive every now and again ?
Peter Murphy has captured a panorama of Stephen at work, recreating his view of the city at Customs House, Circular Quay. Check out Stephen's blog here, or view a panorama of his awesome 10 meter long drawing of Tokyo here.
Perhaps you'd appreciate a live web-cam feed of Stephen performing his unreal photographic memory in action. Hey and there's heaps of video in place when his not in the field of vision - until May 1.
