Mathematics is one of the most important, beneficial and effective study, all over the world. Art is also has a great importance on a society as it includes visuality, emotions and creativity. It is thought that mathematics and art completely different kinds of studies, they have a strong interaction. As mathematics has an important role, its one of the use is in arts. The question that was researched and was used in this study is that “In what ways, does arts be affected by mathematics?” In this study, Fibonacci Numbers, Golden Ratio, Carla Farsi and the Music are studied. First of all, after my researches, I agreed that Fibonacci Numbers and Golden Ratio are the most common relations between maths and art. These two, are not only related with arts, also, we can find them in our daily life, easily. These mathematical tools were used by lots of artists, for example Leonardo da Vinci. This study is exactly focused on the applications of these on arts. The applications of these two on other areas are also studied, basically, to emphasize their importance on life. The use of mathematics and also, to prove my study, Carla Farsi who is both a mathematician and an artist, are studied. By taking all these points into consideration, the ways that arts is affected by mathematics and also, their relations are showed in this study.
