For most of the people, mathematics is a school course with symbols and rules, which they suffer understanding and find difficult throughout their educational life, and even they find it useless in their daily life. Mathematics and arts, in general, are considered and put apart from each other. Mathematics represents truth, while art represents beauty. Mathematics has theories and proofs, but art depends on personal thought. Even though mathematics is a combination of symbols and rules, it has strong effects on daily life and art. It is obvious that those people dealing with strict rules of positive sciences only but nothing else suffer from the lack of emotion. Art has no meaning for them. On the other hand, artists unaware of the rules controlling the whole universe are living in a utopic world. However, a man should be aware both of the real world and emotional world in order to become happy in his life. In order to achieve that he needs two things: mathematics and art. Mathematics is the reflection of the physical world in human mind. Art is a mirror of human spirit. While mathematics showing physical world, art reveals inner world. Then it is not wrong to say that they have strong relations since they both have great effects on human beings. In this study, the relation between art and mathematics are shown by the examples of, Golden Ratio, Fibonacci sequence, and music. Talking about the relation between mathematics and arts, we frequently coincide some mathematical facts such as Golden Ratio and Fibonacci sequence. In fact, we see their applications on many items and even in nature. In this study, I will try to investigate the relation between mathematics and art and these concepts in detail.
