It would be easy to mistake the work of Murat Pulat for collages of some sort. Whether made up of scraps of paper or more three dimensional objects, one will be lost in trying to figure out the medium used without ever guessing one a more traditional route. That is because Murat Pulat's art is far from traditional. They are oil paintings that have been elaborately created using small brush strokes to create the unique textures.

Capturing old Hollywood scenes on his canvas, Murat Pulat pays tribute to the New Wave French films and 1960s television shows by maintaining a predominantly grayscale palette. Yet he does introduce swatches of vibrant color to give his paintings even more of a dynamic quality.
