After a childhood full of science fiction books, movies and television, comic books, Hot Wheels, Odd Rods and Apollo missions to the moon it seemed only natural that spaceship, rocket and car sculptures needed to be made. Luckily, the designers of many of the tools, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, kitchen appliances and scientific equipment from the 1930s through the 1970s had similar desires and I had a good collection to begin creating.
Though some of the sculptures below have found homes, many are still available. If you have any questions or if you are interested in purchasing, feel free to let me know.
Last known whereabouts, somewhere in Pennsylvania.
Made the journey from Santa Barbara to Florida.
In the living room of a most beautiful metal home in Napa, CA.
Hanging in an office in Manchester, MA.
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.
