Beautiful Minds: Stephen Wiltshire

An amazing video— watch British artist Stephen Wiltshire draw an exact panorama of Rome from memory after viewing it aerially from a helicopter for only 45 minutes. Wiltshire is an autistic man who has channeled his uncanny memory into some seriously meticulous drawings. Below are his panoramas of London and Rome, respectively— click on the images for a much larger view. You can visit Wiltshire's website to learn more about the artist and his work.

What an amazing gift! The commentator was a tad irritating when he spoke about some of the imperfections...are you kidding me?!?!? I find people sometimes question that which they thing is not possible. To quote adidas' tagline "Impossible is Nothing." This artist has an amazing, awe-inspiring talent. Great post.
