Byron Walker is a native Floridian currently residing in Winter Park.
Byron owns “avant’garden designs” a design/build company;
specializing in landscape development and sculptural art.
As a youngster Byron developed a deep love of art and nature
and, at an early age, was compelled to transform his creative
visions into physical reality- using primarily everyday and raw
materials in ways that are transformational and thought provoking.
Byron studied Landscape Architecture and Sculpture in college. His
studies led him to develop an interest in environmental art. Most of
his current works are created from found recyclable and reusable
materials ranging from windshield glass, wood, shovelhead steel,
plastics, stone, organic matter and plant life.
The intent of his work is to assemble and display materials in ways
in which they were not originally designed to function. Byron’s work
is not limited to the boundaries of any particular style, method or
interpretation. His creations come together by feeling,
constructiveness, humor and the curiosity to “provoke thought” in
