Urban Drawings from Memory with Detailed Cityscapes

An artist that uses his memories and skills, to reproduce key details, of the cities we live in.
British artist Stephen Wiltshire, has a passion for drawing and painting, but it is his memory that plays as big a part, as does his art.  He is able to take in and retain a lot of the information he is placed in front of, sometimes even if that time is quite brief.  A talent that allows him to take mental pictures and then, recreate them at a later date, if he chooses to.  I have tried to pick the most varied selection of places in the world, whilst prioritising my favourite cityscapes and urban drawings amongst them.  I hope you agree with my choices and that you enjoy the following.
