Living Camera: Stephen Wiltshire
London based architectural artist, Stephen was diagnosed as autistic when he was 3 years. Probably the reason for his astounding photographic memory and ability to recreate it... Although some are also made from his own imagination with a twist of dark humour, such as St. Paul cathedral surrounded by fire, or post-earthquake ruins of a city. I am so perplexed at the creativity and artistry of this fantastic man, not to forget his incredible photographic memory, kinda wish he sat for my exams now. Lol!
Here are some of his world renowned paintings and sketches:
|"London burning" most probably drawn from his imagination|
|City of Glasgow|
|The Eiffel tower, Paris|
|Stephen with his "Spiritual home", NYC|
|Bird's eye view of London as a globe.|
|Bustling city of London|
|Stephen drawing his much acclaimed 18-foot long landscape of New York City.|
Well, my dearest folks, hope you enjoyed reading something new about someone as cool as Stephen. Hope to visit his Gallery in London sometimes soon.
Until next time with more inspiring art posts,
Loaaaaads of love,
