“Study the science of art and the art of science.” - Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci: "Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses and especially, learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else" and "only through experimentation can we know anything."

Science is the king of art subjects. It is the art of inventions, discoveries, innovations and gaining more knowledge.

"Science is the new art".

Science-art:  selling art to  scientists and science to artists. 

Education is all about learning all those you want to learn and applying wherever possible.

Albert Einstein’s quote — “the greatest scientists are artists as well”.

Science has always relied on visual representation to convey key concepts.

  ‘If you can’t explain something simply, you don’t understand it.’ - Albert Einstein

Math is undeniably artistic

An interdisciplinary researcher must  face the challenge of being proficient in two (or multiple) different research areas! Not only must s/he be familiar with key principles and methodology in each area, but also understand baseless "biases" and "dogmas" that are a result of inbreeding, and struggle to fight these, as new knowledge emerges from her/his research. An unenviable task indeed! The pointlessness of evaluating such researchers work with conventional metrics should be aptly emphasized.

“The best scientists, engineers and mathematicians are incredibly creative in their approaches to problem-solving and application development”.

"Science, like art, is not a copy of nature but a re-creation of her." – Jacob Bronowski

In scientia veritas, in arte honestas — in science truth, in art honor

E.W. Sinnot, the American biologist and philosopher: "Stored images in the mind are the basis for new creative ideas."

Science based art and literature : communicating complexity through simplicity - Krishna

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.
--Physicist and Violinist Albert Einstein

Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything by Anonymous

Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art - Will Durant 

Life itself is a beautiful interaction between art and science. You can't escape it! - Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa 

                    

"The Science of Art is like putting a microphone to the whispers of creativity that echo through the halls of every research laboratory fused with the late night musings of the artists in their studios" - Sachi DeCou

“Every Science begins as Philosophy and ends as Art, it arises in hypothesis and flows into achievement”- Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy

Scientists can be artists as well,  while they submit their academic papers, and theses they often draw their own illustrations!

Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you, no humility, no compassion.
-Eckhart Tolle

Science has enabled the kind of art we’ve never before seen.

Without the arts, science is hobbled. Without science, art is static.

John Maeda wrote of Leonardo da Vinci’s observations that art is the queen of science.

Science is as much cultural as art is cultural,”

Art is science made clear (what!).

"The aim of art is not to represent the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." - Aristotle.

Science is a search for answers, based on logic, rationality and verification. Its workplace is the laboratory.

In contrast, art is a search for questions, based on intuition, feeling and speculation. Its workplace is the studio.

DaVinci himself said, "Art is the queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world. "
"Art is the heart's explosion on the world. Music. Dance. Poetry. Art on canvas, on walls, on our skins. There is probably no more powerful force for change in this uncertain and crisis-ridden world than young people and their art. It is the consciousness of the world breaking away from the strangle grip of an archaic social order." - Luis J. Rodriguez.

For Dawkins, understanding the science behind natural phenomena (and sometimes being reminded of how much more we have yet to learn or discover) can still make our encounters with them sublime. From this point of view, science is the champion of artistic creativity, not its enemy.

"Scientists and artists are both trying to get a better understanding of the world around us, but they are doing it through different lenses,"

It takes many skills to achieve truly remarkable things. A diverse view to solving problems is best.

You need a deep understanding of science to actually manipulate concepts in novel ways and get creative in science - Krishna

"If you hear a voice within you saying, 'You are not a painter,' then by all means paint ... and that voice will be silenced, but only by working."
-- Vincent van Gogh, in a letter to his brother Theo, 28 October 1883.

"The line between art and science is a thin one, and it waves back and forth”

"One of the most common misconceptions about science is that it isn't creative — that it is inflexible, prescribed or boring. Actually, creativity is a crucial part of how we do science"!

"All knowledge has its origins in perception." Da Vinci.

“The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it; and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful." Jules Henri Poincare

The beauty of art lies in the inimitable creativity of the artist and in the interpretation of the beholder.

"Artists see things one way and scientists another and the really interesting thing is in what's in between."

Einstein’s support of artistic endeavors is both well-known and well-documented.

“The greatest scientists are artists as well,” he once said.

Atul Dodiya (Indian Artist) : Life is beautiful as a painter. Changing colour, observing life and paying attention to every detail that we’re exposed to, and then giving our own vision to it… Nothing gives me more joy.

Art : You accomplish a task that is called art as there is no specific postulates or guidelines.

Science : You do the work with a set of guidelines.

"Change and risk-taking are normal aspects of the creative process. They are the lubricants that keep the wheels in motion. A creative act is not necessarily something that has never been done; it is something you have never done."
-- Nita Leland in The Creative Artis

 Pablo Picasso once said, "Good artists copy, great artists steal." All creative artists build upon the work established by the masters before them. ( Not me!- Krishna)

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.   Art is knowing which ones to keep – Scott Adams

‘Art makes science come alive for students’

Albert Einstein - “The greatest scientists are artists as well”.

“ Science art shows some of the incredible natural beauty that researchers in life sciences see every day in their work.”

The El Segundo Museum of Art hosts German artist Michael Sistig in his first solo exhibit in the United States. “Experience 23: Matter,” which brings science into an artistic realm, opens Sunday, June 5, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sistig said he tries to explain the world through his paintings, which are inspired by scientific theories, through “visual and sculptural representations of worlds no one has ever seen.

Physicist merges science and art
From black holes to wormholes and interstellar events, Physicist Kip Thorne presented the nature of science through art at the Musco Center for the Arts May 12.

Thorne is a theoretical physicist who has made contributions in gravitational physics and astrophysics. Before retiring seven years ago, he worked as a professor at the California Institute of Technology for 50 years. He is currently collaborating with artist Lia Halloran on a book portraying the experience of poetic science and paintings.

Science as art: Show:  

On the corner of University Avenue in downtown Champaign lies Gallery 217 in the same area where former art gallery indi go Co-Op used to be.

This past Friday, the gallery was filled with artwork spanning the walls of both its floors as well as the people responsible for these illustrations. Nothing was unusual about the people or the artwork except for the fact that these artists were in fact scientists — genomic scientists to be specific — and the artwork was pictures taken from their research.

This event was known as "Art of Science 6.0," and the idea behind it was to merge both science and art to show genomic research is just as vividly captivating as the masterpieces lining the walls of modern art museums. This is the sixth year that the event has been running but the first year that it has been held at Gallery 217.

The  show ran from Friday, April 29 to Sunday, May 1, after which the artwork will travel to places around the local community, such as Research Park, the Alumni Center and Willard Airport.

Projective Geometry applied to Perspective art: A proofs-based course
Crannell’s technique helps me understand why some paintings seem to leap off the page, and some, even though they basically look realistic, don’t quite pop. In some pieces we looked at, lines that should have represented parallel lines in the real world didn't end up determining a consistent vanishing point. Looking at any one part of the painting, nothing was clearly wrong, but the overall effect was slightly imperfect. When artists do manage to deploy perfect perspective—and viewers manage to find the correct vantage point—the effect can be startlingly realistic.
