A New Sculpturalism: Contemporary Architecture from Southern California is part of Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. This collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together seventeen cultural institutions from April through July for a wide-ranging look at the postwar built environment of the city as a whole, from its famous residential architecture to its vast freeway network, revealing the city’s development and ongoing impact in new ways.

Major support for the exhibition has been provided by the Getty Foundation and The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation.
Generous support is provided by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
Additional support is provided by the Pasadena Art Alliance and Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown.
In-kind support is provided by Arktura.

Stephen Wiltshire is a British architectural artist who has been diagnosed with autism. When I heard of his story I was intrigued and began looking at his work and was really moved at his ability to use scribbles as a sky line and make the horizon look complete.  I guess the same can be safe for  architectural icon Frank Gehry who began with tiny scribbles and wrinkled paper later turning them into amazing homes and landmarks.

But most importantly amazing is his ability to draw from memory after seeing things only once!  At age 3 he was diagnosed as mute and then autistic.
Peep the video below to get an idea of how Stephen Wiltshire gets down! Very inspiring.
