For a special design project Turkish artist Murat Palta took some of the most famous films from the past forty years and has created a unique vision of some classic movies and there’s something special about the illustrations on offer here – the Tarantino inspired prints are great fun, as is the depiction of Tom Skerrit and Yaphet Kotto in Alien.
The artist comments on the project on the page on Behance.net,
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.
Here are the choice pics but do check out the page for more films and pics - see if you can guess all the films below…
The pathway to this particular corner of the internet was paved by the wonderous Metafilter.
