Murat Palta’s Classic Movies in Miniature
Oriental art meets west movie icons in truly postmodern poster series by young illustrator Murat Palta.
We’ve seen movie posters all over the web before, but there’s been an interesting twist recently, when the Istanbul-based illustrator Murat Palta decided to share his graduation thesis project, the study of how oriental art meets west. Digging deep into his study to pop culture, he illustrated these obsolete posters of movie classics in traditional 16th century Ottoman style of miniatures.
The sultan will give you an offer that you can’t refuse, as the project was a complete success. Combining global with local, each separate piece is stunning, there’s something in this style that really works with movies: it might be the fun mood he creates, or the amount of details he uses, or the incredible selection of the scenes for each film like Jack Nicholson’s door-bashing entrance in ‘The Shining’.
