Though it has been over 40 years since I moved to Santa Barbara, I still wake up every day amazed by both the natural and man-made beauty of this town. When I am not in the studio, I often meander aimlessly through charming, scenic neighborhoods filled with many artistic touches that make Santa Barbara such a special place to live. These are a few photos from my walks.
If you plan to visit Santa Barbara and would like tips on neighborhoods to walk in, feel free to contact me.

Tal Avitzur is an assemblage artist whose found-object sculptures are created from vintage items collected from the auto, aircraft and marine salvage yards of Southern California. Many of his fantasy-themed, mixed-media sculptures are heavily influenced by the science fiction, mythology and comic books of his youth. Tal's unique, whimsical, one-of-a-kind, steampunk-like art can be found in the homes, offices and man-caves of collectors who embrace their inner child. Tal's studio, workshop and gallery is located in Santa Barbara, California and is a short drive from Los Angeles, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties.
