Wandering through Stephen Wiltshire’s strokes

En nuestro afán de viajar, hoy descubrimos los edificios más emblemáticos de medio mundo a través de los ojos y los trazos de Stephen Wiltshire, artista inglés a quien la naturaleza ha dado el don de reproducir cualquier paisaje –principalmente arquitectónico- con tan solo verlo una vez y por unos pocos segundos.

La primera ocasión en la que mostró públicamente su memoria fotográfica fue con 13 años en la BBC, dibujando detalle por detalle la catedral de Salisbury, que sólo había visto una vez. Ahora Stephen tiene 42 años y se dedica a viajar a lo largo del planeta reproduciendo sus edificios más emblemáticos con tan solo necesidad de un lienzo, un rotulador y música soul de los 70 y los 80.

The first time that he publicly showed his photographic memory was with 13 years of age at the BBC, drawing detail by detail the Salisbury Cathedral, he had only seen once. Now Stephen is 42 years old and is dedicated to tour the planet rendering its most emblematic buildings just needing a canvas, a marker and soul music from the 70s and 80s.
