Classic Movies Reimagined as Traditional Ottoman Paintings

ArtMovieby Joey Paur

Artist Murat Palta has created this wonderfully awesome series of illustrations featuring classic films in the style of classic Ottoman paintings. They were created for the artist's graduation thesis, and this is what he said,

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. 

The movies featured here include Kill Bill, Scarface, The Godfather, Star Wars, The Shining, Inception, Terminator 2, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, and Clockwork Orange.
