This study is about people who fight for recognition on its background, while visualising rulership and oppressive practices of rulers via the signs of power and governance on its visual platform. Throughout the history, people not only admired the subjects of power and governance due to their attracting natures that resemble extraordinary beings but also tortured them. A creature like a bull has not only been a symbol of power in our daily lives, but also named some powerful animals; the names of plant and equipment that razes nature to the ground are inspired by it. In mythology, Zeus disguised as a bull to seduce Europe, making bull an interesting figure in art history as a symbol of power; and has been also mentioned as oppressive in addition to symbolyzing masculine power. Since the Renaissance, art and politics have been in a love and hatred relationship in the span of propaganda - avantgarde protest art. Our current era is unique due to the new dynamics that are rarely practiced in our country and the world. Our time has been documented for the understanding and interpretation of the coming generations by the images of the "Last Human", "Demolition", "Poster", "Good Night" series and this thesis that contain power and governance symbols visualized by the bulls and its associations. The conceptually strong new narrative language that has started with the demolition series and shaped by the poster series is named as "Materialist Synthetic Reality". Collage is used as a narration, and oil painting on canvas is used as material.
