Classic Movies in Ottoman Miniature Style

Posted filed underDesign, Film, Turkey.


The sultan will give you an offer that you can’t refuse. Murat Palta, an artist in Instanbul, made illustrations of famous movies in the classical Ottoman miniature style: “It all started 2 years ago with an experiment to blend traditional ‘oriental’ (Ottoman) motifs and contemporary ‘western’ cinema. After a positive response to “Ottoman Star Wars”, I decided to take the theme further, and developed more film posters using the same technique.

Combining global with local, traditional with contemporary, and adding a bit of humor made it a fun and rewarding experience for me. According to my marks that I got from the project, the teachers’ opinion were the same.”

Above we got “Pulp Fiction” of course and below we have “Clockwork Orange”.
