View From The Shard

Here is the latest pen-and-ink drawing from Stephen Wiltshire MBE: The View From The Shard (2013). Stephen is the first artist to be invited to Western Europe’s tallest building (800ft) to record the view. Stephen's eidetic memory - commonly called "photographic memory" - allows him to recall a complex scene, such as a city skyline, in incredible detail (CLICK). He has his own London art gallery, which is well worth visiting (CLICK). One of his favourite movies is the Oscar-winning Rain Man (1988) in which Dustin Hoffman plays a prodigious savant whose talent is in memorizing numbers (CLICK).
