The Olympics came to an end this weekend and artist Damien Hirst added an urban flare to the conclusion of 2012 Summer Olympics Games. Damien was asked to design a Union Jack for the ceremony and did not disappoint!

This story has been catching on in the social media world in the past few days but needs much more attention. British artist Stephen Wiltshire, who happens to have autism, drew New York City’s skyline from memory. Stephen has the unique skill of drawing from memory. He flew in a helicopter for only a couple of hours before heading into an art studio to begin drawing.  Stephen continued to draw for the next three days and the results and produced uncanny results.

The artist has done work like this in the past. He has drawn the skyline’s from other major cities in the world such as London, Rome, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Madrid, Dubai, Jerusalem and Frankfurt.

Stephen’s impressive, panoramic drawing will be placed in New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
