Artist updates city skyline
AN EXHIBITION by autistic artist Stephen Wilshire is being held in Birmingham to mark World Autism Awareness Day tomorrow.
The artist first visited Birmingham as a 12-year-old who showed a phenomenal ability to draw architecture.
Now 34, he has returned for the showcase of his work which is running at The Mailbox's Artlounge until Sunday.
It includes a new drawing of the Birmingham skyline, with recent additions such as Selfridges and the Beetham Tower.
'I love the new skyline, the tall buildings,' he said.
Christine Bailey, of Autism West Midlands, which is promoting the exhibition, said: 'The aim of World Autism Day is to raise awareness across the world about autism and help people understand what it is.'
