Textured Old Hollywood Paintings

Artist Murat Pulat Incorporates Swatches of Vibrant Colors

— February 5, 2014 — Pop Culture
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.

Murat Pulat hails from Turkey.
Trend Themes
1. Mixed Media Paintings - Exploring the combination of different materials and techniques in art, such as incorporating scraps of paper or three-dimensional objects, opens up new possibilities for creativity and self-expression.
2. Textured Oil Paintings - By using small brush strokes to create unique textures, artists can add depth and visual interest to their oil paintings, making them stand out and captivate viewers.
3. Contrasting Color Palettes - Incorporating vibrant swatches of color within predominantly grayscale compositions creates a powerful contrast that can evoke strong emotions and add a dynamic quality to artworks.
Industry Implications
1. Fine Art - The fine art industry can explore opportunities to embrace mixed media techniques and textured oil paintings to offer unique and captivating artworks to art enthusiasts.
2. Interior Design - With contrasting color palettes being utilized in textured oil paintings, interior designers can leverage this trend by incorporating similar color schemes and textured artwork to create visually striking and dynamic spaces.
3. Film and Television - Taking inspiration from the old Hollywood scenes captured in Murat Pulat's paintings, the film and television industry can reimagine and recreate these nostalgic aesthetics to create visually stunning productions with a touch of retro charm.
