Turkish illustrator Murat Palta has created quite a unique blend by taking scenes from contemporary western cinema and giving them the look-and-feel of traditional Ottoman art. The results are nothing less than spectacular. Above, Terminator II.
The following illustrations form a part of a portfolio I created for my graduation thesis.
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.
