Although the Turkish nation adopted the belief of Islam, the mythological symbols that were nourished by their past beliefs, they transformed some of these beliefs into a lifestyle and reflected them into their arts and brought them up to this time. In our rapidly globalizing age, as in all life, one of the things we need to live together as a nation is to adhere to our national culture. Therefore, we collect the Turkish mythology, which constitutes our national values, in our research by revealing its effect on Turkish art in a concrete way. Thus, it aims to bring out the elements of Turkish culture and reveal them, as well as transfer the culture of the Turkish nation to future generations through artists and students who are hoped to access this work. Based on this idea, the study examined works of art and the work of artists, starting with rock paintings made in the prehistoric period. As a result of research, it was determined that Turkish mythology has continuously influenced our art for thousands of years.
