A British artist of West Indian descent, Wiltshire is known for his ability to draw detailed cityscapes completely from memory. Several of his most famous drawings of the New York City and Tokyo skylines, were done after only 20 minutes of viewing the cities from a helicopter.  

At the age of 3, Wiltshire was diagnosed as autistic, and spent the first few years of his life at Queensmill School in London. It was here that his amazing artistic abilities were discovered and teachers used his love for drawing to help him better relate to the world around him.

    It may well prove useful if we Blacks would finally lose the insecurity about the quality of our intelligence. As to the occurrence of 'genius' in our population, it's likely on par with that of any other ethnic group. Most of us likely know at least one.

    My uncle is autistic but he's no savant. However, he has a amazing memory and can recall events and days from twenty years ago
