Movies Made Out As Old Ottoman Miniature Paintings
A scene from ‘A Clockwork Orange’ in the style of an “Ottoman miniature” painting by artist Murat Palta.

Ottoman Miniature Paintings were strongly linked to the old Persian miniature tradition, as well as the Chinese artistic influences.They were oftentimes used in books as illustrations and differed from the European Renaissance works of art at the time.

Murat Palta, a Turkish artist, has made a series in an Ottoman miniature style by mixing the old artistic tradition with famous movie scenes. His first work was made in 2011 when he combined the old Ottoman art form with some Star Wars characters. So, from the House of Blue Leaves in Kill Bill to A Clockwork Orange and Jack Nicholson’s door-smashing mental breakdown in The Shining, we have a few works that can make our day.


You can see more of his works and in greater detail in Palta’s “Classic Movies in Minature Style” page on Behance.
