Hundreds of people were drawn to the Paragon mall to see savant Stephen Wiltshire in action yesterday.
Acclaimed for his ability to draw detailed cityscapes from memory, the Briton has been commissioned by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) to draw the Singapore cityscape as part of SPH's 30th anniversary celebrations.
