11-year-old Alex Baker from the UK does not need a camera when travelling, as he has a unique photographic memory and can easily and in detail draw any place he has ever been or seen in a picture.
Most of all, the little artist loves to paint panoramic cityscapes. Moreover, the more buildings and the more complex their architecture, the better.
The boy has already developed his own author’s style – his works look like complex sketches with a minimum number of colors.
It takes Alex about three hours to create one picture, but if the landscape is difficult, then the little Briton can sit for several days at work.
Alex’s parents are very happy about this hobby of their son. The boy has autism and in childhood he was rather withdrawn, but after he began to draw pictures, his condition and mood improved markedly. The young artist is even thinking about selling his work to earn money to travel to New York and paint the city. Source, edited by Michael Walsh.
