Painting by Numbers – Maths in Art as you’d never imagine!
Did you know that some of the most renowned artists and inventors were fantastic mathematicians? Da Vinci, Picasso, Michael Angelo, and the Ancient Mayans used their mathematical skills to produce their awesome works. Today artists such as Banksy and web designers weave wonder into their work with maths.
For one day only, maths gets creative; number pops up in odd places - it's waiting around corners for you; it's hidden in the deepest layers of time; in space and outer galaxies and it is still art.
Calling all mathematicians and artists alike, come and twist your thinking into a new dimension. Open your eyes to artistic illusion and mysterious topological surfaces. Max it up or shrink it down; zoom out and in on infinite patterns of the universe - it puts multiplication in a whole new light. Are you ready for the mega mix of math-art-matics?
