This post was supposed to go up weeks ago, however lots of work/uni commitments literally have my my hands tied, with my dissertation deadline this friday so sorry there hasn't been a post in a week! Anyways, i went to visit the Stephen Wiltshire gallery when i was in London the other week and i was in such awe at his amazing work i had to do a blogpost on it.
If you've never heard of Stephen Wiltshire before (where have you been?) he is basically a young man with autism who has the most incredible memory and can draw skylines with amazing detail after a 20min helicopter ride over a city. He's drawn the skylines of New York, London, Singapore and Sydney taking up to weeks to draw from memory after seeing them. The gallery is located in the stunning Royal Opera Arcade, London's oldest shopping arcade and is a cute and bright little space filled with his drawings and information on his life/career.
If you're ever in the area, i would definitely recommend this as a cute little place to visit, which will definitely open your eyes to how AMAZING of a talent Stephen Wiltshire has and also how very jealous i became whilst attempting to draw a stick man.
