Imaging seeing a city’s landscape for only a brief seconds, and then paint it perfectly. Well, that is exactly what Stephen Wiltshire does.

Famous as one of the most prolific and talented young artist in Britain, Stephen is an architectural artist and autistic savant. Famous for his ability to draw landscape from memory after seeing it just once.

In 2006, he was made a member of the Order of the British Empire for services to art. Stephen draws detailed cityscapes, and has a particular talent for drawing lifelike and accurate impressions after observing them briefly.

Wiltshire uses Staedtler pens for his pen and ink drawings. This documentary follows his journey, particularly in the greatest challenge, to draw the largest ever panoramic view of London.

Here is how he made it.
