Stephen Wiltshire draws Brisbane

Stephen Wiltshire

This event is now in the past.

See the city of Brisbane come to life on canvas over four days, through the brilliance of British artist Stephen Wiltshire, MBE.

Stephen will fly over Brisbane city in a helicopter, before he spends the next four days committing his view to a large canvas, while you watch.

Stephen has gained worldwide acclaim for his large scale and highly detailed drawings of many of the world’s great cities including New York, Tokyo, Venice, London and Sydney – and now its Brisbane’s turn!

The UK’s most exciting young artist produces energetic streetscapes and panoramas that are immediately recognisable – and often drawn from memory and at great speed.

Stephen’s talent is even more incredible considering that he was diagnosed with autism when he was three years old. His work is now popular all over the world and is held in a number of important collections.

A TEDxBrisbane event, in partnership with State Library of Queensland.
