Autistic artist draws New York from memory

Friday, October 30, 2009

Like a Skyline Is Etched in His Head:
In a helicopter above the city on Friday, Stephen Wiltshire of London looked down at the streets and sprawl of New York. He flew for 20 minutes. Since then, working only from the memory of that sight, he has been sketching and drawing a mighty panorama of the city, rendering the city’s 305 square miles along an arc of paper that is 19 feet long. He is working publicly in a gallery at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

The same man was flown over Rome and did the same thing, drawing a panoramic image from memory. A science channel documentary included it along with a series of other amazing human abilities.
