Stephen Wiltshire Draws Brisbane from Memory

British artist Stephen Wiltshire has a particular talent for drawing lifelike, remarkably detailed panoramas of iconic cities, sometimes after having only observed them briefly. Starting with Tokyo in 2005, he has drawn Rome, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Madrid, Dubai, Jerusalem, London and New York on giant canvasses. His most recent trips took him to Sydney, Shanghai and Brisbane.

The time lapse video above shows him taking four days to complete an intricate panoramic drawing of Brisbane after merely one viewing of the city.
