Mathematics And Art


Mathematics and art are two subjects that are entirely different in their nature, study, creation and implementation. Mathematics is known to be a more certain subject in its approach and design in comparison to art which has no boundaries. However, an unknown relationship exists between the two that’s intrinsic to each other’s existence.

Math is known to act as a fundamental for art while implementing different ideas, color, formulas, etc., with different techniques. Similarly it has also been observed that when art and its intricate nature is studied, it tends to reveal a distinct mathematical characteristic which is rare and critical to its existence. Thus, broadly seen, it can be said that mathematics and art are inter-related and are responsible for existence of each other.

According to andistix, “Creativity and Language Arts have shared a thriving partnership in the classroom to the benefit of both students and teachers. Students always seem to appreciate an occasion to write to music or to create a poem in response to an intriguing photograph. The outcome of these efforts is both favorable and rewarding. These divergent learning processes clearly elevate student curiosity and performance.”

The spatial visualization of mathematics is known to cement the diversion between mathematics and art. It reveals their relation based upon their behavior, interdependency. There are several methods that testify mathematics as an art. For example, using it as a creative art to teach students, visualizing mathematics which are mostly related to the implementation part of it. However, journal writing also describes mathematics as a creative art in the form of expression, employing technology for the same.

Mathematics And Art

One mathematical connection with art is that some artists needed to develop or use mathematical thinking to carry out their artistic vision. Among such artists were Luca Pacioli (c. 1145-1514), Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), Albrecht Dürer (1471-1...

Mathematics And Art - So Many Connections

At a practical level, mathematical tools have always been used in an essential way in the creation of art. Since ancient times, the lowly compass and straightedge, augmented by other simple draftsmen's and craftsmen's tools, have been used to crea...

The Link Between Art And Mathematics

There would seem to be an implausible relationship between art and mathematics. After all, the two domains seem to depend on vastly different thinking patterns. We do not question the interrelationship between science and mathematics, and the scie...

Mathematics And Painting

Mathematics and painting are interrelated in many ways. At a technical level, mathematics can be used to enhance our appreciation of paintings. This was recently demonstrated beautifully by Taylor, Micolich, and Jones in their analysis of Jackson ...

Interactions Between Maths And Art

This article looks at some of the interactions between mathematics and art in western culture. There are other topics which will look at the interaction between mathematics and art in other cultures.

Why The History Of Maths Is Also The History Of Art

In her book Mathematics and Art, historian Lyn Gamwell explores how artists have for thousands of years used mathematical concepts such as infinity, number and form in their work.

Math Is Art

Connections between math and science are easy to find. Those between art and science sometimes require a bit more work, but if you are in New York City over the holidays a trip downtown can do wonders for bridging the left brain/right brain divide...

How To Create Art With Mathematics

The beautiful colour illustration of frieze patterns above is taken from Frank A. Farris’ (Princeton University Press, 2015), a math book that, unusually, makes an outstanding coffee-table book in addition to having deep mathematical content...
