Ottoman miniatures meet Hollywood film

Turkish student Murat Palta has done something very creative for his senior thesis project – he  merged the language of Hollywood film posters  with Ottoman miniature paintings.    He has captured the compositional style, colours and patterns, and general authentic “look” of the miniatures.  Capturing a moment of high tension and drama from the films (Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, A Clockwork Orange, and many more – see Scarface at right) he has created a unique mash-up of genres.

See all the paintings from Palta’s portfolio here; and some more background from this Slate article.
