In celebration of Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, a one-of-a-kind art exhibit will open at a pop-up gallery space in Shoreditch, London from 14th to 18th December.
Curated by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years features Star Trek-inspired works created by 50 different artists from all around the world, including a piece from renowned actor and photographer Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed Spock in the original Star Trek series.
50 Artists. 50 Years features original 2D and 3D artwork by 50 artists from 10 countries. Each artist selected their own medium to express their love of the franchise and the inspiration they gained from it.
The exhibit, which originally premiered at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2016, includes illustrations, photographs, sculptures, paintings, graphics and more. Some of the artists featured in the collection include digital artists Tom Whalen, Joshua Budich and Rocco Malatesta, sculptor Calvin Ma, and actor and photographer Leonard Nimoy. Nimoy’s piece is an eerie depiction of the Vulcan salute in multi-color that rings particularly poignant given his recent passing last year.
