Stephen Wiltshire is the genius autistic painter, and now somewhat of a celebrity. His extraordinary ability to look at an entire metropolitan skyline and then make a detailed sketch of it from memory has earned him the nickname of “the human camera”, but he is more than that. As an advocate for modern teaching processes that address people’s different learning styles and natural gifts, his story and talents move and amaze. …but don’t take my word for it. See for yourself. Watch this video, which was shot in October 2008. Read all about him on his About Me webpage. Or my favorite way…watch more videos about him on his News webpage.
Now I just need to save up enough to buy at least one of his original pieces!
