Mythology and myths are the memory of societies. Mythology has an important place in transfusing the social lives, cultures, faiths of the society to the new generations. The legends, different types of characters and gods in mythology provide us the way of society perceptions and point of views to the World. The information transmitted either in oral or written form continues to exist in our subconscious today. Many of our artists have used these mythological concepts in their works. Şefkat İşlegen is one of our successful artists who, used mythological elements in her paintings and included them in her works. The figures and colours she used in her works, their meaning in Turkish mythology, the places where they settled in Turkish society, and we will try to examine based on the reflections of our artist's works.
