Steven Wiltshire was born in London, England, in 1974 and was dumb when he was young. At the age of three, he was diagnosed with autism. In the same year, his father died as a result of a motorcycle accident. At the age of five, Wiltshire was sent to Queensmilla's school in London, where he showed an interest in drawing.
Wiltshire can consider the topic once and then draw an accurate and detailed picture. He often draws entire cities from his memory, based on single, short trips by helicopter. He also draws fictional scenes. His first words were paper and pencil. In elementary school, his teachers used his interest in drawing as a way of encouraging him to communicate.
One of them, took him to draw pictures and entered his work in competitions. He prospered in his work. The artist sold his first photograph for £ 1500 at the age of seven and has since been in high demand. He started his carrier in New York when he was only 13 years old.
The best thing about his success, says Wiltshire, is everyone he meets, he loves to interact with different people. Wheresoever he works, people stop agape to watch him. In Singapore, he had 150,000 visitors to his gallery during a live performance in just five days.
He says: "It makes me feel good and happy because it makes people smile". He draws buildings because he loves drawing. Stephen is one of the most prolific and talented young artists of Britain.
