Stephen Wiltshire has autism, but that’s not the way most people define him. The way most people see him is as an incredible artist who can create entire cityscapes — completely from memory.

UBS invited Wiltshire to tour New York and take a helicopter ride. It was a challenge of sorts, but one everyone knew he would complete with flying colors. Then they gave him a giant canvas to recreate the entire city of Manhattan, using only the images imprinted in his mind.

The result is something so incredibly beautiful and intricate, it’s hard to believe one man was able to do it, and without using any photos!!!

Because of his autism, Stephen was mute until he was four years old.

Drawing was a way for him to communicate, and has continued to be a way he expresses his beautiful soul to the world! WOW.
