i remember seeing this dude on a documentary a while back; can remember being suprised by his talents but i obviously didn’t take a serious look @ his work because i’m now amazed. Stephen Wiltshire draws and paints detailed cityscapes; he draws lifelike, accurate representations of cities, having sometimes only observed them briefly.
born on 24th April, 1974, Stephen was a mute as a child, and did not relate well to other people. then at the age of three, he was diagnosed as autistic. he had no language and lived entirely in his own world. at the age of five, Stephen was sent to Queensmill School in London, where it was noticed that the only pastime he enjoyed was drawing. it soon became apparent he communicated with the world through the language of drawing; first animals, then London buses, and finally buildings.
here is immeasurable, natural innate artistry. i can’t look at a number & know for sure i’ve memorised it without a couple of takes; forget a city. dude is a beast, full stop. his work is popular all over the world, and is held in a number of important collections.
I need something like this when I move into a new flat. I always think that one way or another music in some way influences the way we act & dress. I bet many can vouch for Pharrell Williams & his Bape sponsorship deal inspired there way into the world of street clothing. A very clever piece indeed, see if you can match the outfits to the artists!.
