Worship cult films? Check out Murat Palta’s oriental cinematic miniatures

Reducing much-loved objects to a fraction of their original size appeals to the human brain on an almost incomparable charm-level. If you’ve ever been reduced to tears while petting a falabella horse, been genuinely spellbound by Hamburg’s Miniatur Wunderland or waited impatiently by the bit where the caterers emerge at a wedding purely to snatch some miniature burgers then you’ll certainly love the work of Turkish illustrator, Murat Palta. For his final thesis, Murat mixed the visual style of oriental miniature paintings with the themes of contemporary Western cinema. Starting with Star Wars, Murat received such positive feedback that he then went on to recreate other cult films such as Pulp Fiction, A Clockwork Orange, Scarface and Kill Bill.
