A few weeks ago,  legendary actor and human being, Leonard Nimoy passed away. His most prominent role as Mr. Spock, the cosmically biracial half vulcan, half human on Star Trek, magnetized popular culture. He was the epitome of cool, calm, and collected; a being with the utmost intelligence, along with the adroitness and ultimate dexterity to successfully complete any task. But what made the character most intriguing and captivating was his insight of humanity and stark clarity on what it truly meant to be human — an ongoing conflict between his Vulcan methodology and human emotions.

Perhaps his most notable transcendence into pop culture was Spock’s Vulcan hand sign, or even the Vulcan death grip, inspired by Spock’s versant  understanding of anatomy and pin-pointing certain parts of the body which would render anyone unconscious.

Prior to his death, Nimoy’s last words to the world were delivered through Twitter: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”

To honor the life of Nimoy, we comprised a collection of 10 of the best Spock related street art pieces from all over the world.
