Great City Drawings – level 3
Artist Stephen Wiltshire is famous for his ability to create entire cityscapes from memory. He has drawn many cities such as Paris and London, to name just a few, and now he is undertaking one of his biggest challenges yet – Mexico City.
He has a perfect photographic memory and he was able to start sketching the city based merely on a 30-minute helicopter flight the day before. That is simply something as much unbelievable as how amazing his drawings are.
Stephen was diagnosed with autism at just three years old and he says that drawing is one of few things that calm him down. Furthermore, thanks to his great drawings, people awarded him an MBE 10 years ago for services to art.
Difficult words: cityscape (the visual appearance of a city), merely (only), MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire).
