Positive Autism ShowCase: Stephen Wiltshire Draws Tokyo

Draw Tokyo Just From Memory

Stephen Wiltshire is a British autistic savant and accomplished artist. He became famous as the best child artist in Britain and published his first bestseller book at the age of 12. In 2006 he was awarded an MBE and became the member of the British Empire.

One of Stephen’s extraordinary abilities is to memorize landscapes up to the highest detail. During this flight he had a thorough look at the view of the Japanese capital from the helicopter including thousands of buildings, towers, high-ways, cars, buses, even down to intricate details of trees and windows. Following the 30 minutes ride Stephen seemed to be very excited and ready for the challenge.
