Coming to an ancient Turkish theater near you: Star Wars! As part of his graduation thesis, Murat Palta created this exceptionally entertaining series of movie themed illustrations based on motifs from the Ottoman Empire. His eastern take on western cinema is as interesting to look at as it is hilarious… it’s such a unique take on traditional cinema.
Palta got his start with the theme by creating “Ottoman Star Wars” and received such an enthusiastic response he’s produced a load more: we see characters from the movies A Clockwork Orange, Alien, Goodfellas, Inception, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Scarface, Terminator II, The Godfather and The Shining. On close inspection his cartoonish characters are revealed with features in the classic theme, but with surprisingly recognizable faces.
Interested in seeing more of the series, including many close-ups of the images? Swing by Palta’s Behance page.
