Pi Synesthesia

Where Math Meets Art

Pi Synesthesia is a unique artistic concept created by Cano Ozgener. With his background in mechanical engineering, Cano asserts that the most fascinating and important number in the world is the numerical constant Pi, which is 3.1415 … and goes on to infinity. He first took that fascination for Pi and paired that never-ending number with colors, based on chakras or rainbow colors, which became his series with Pi that he now paints on canvases.

Inspiration

Cano has always had a passion for art, numbers and visiting museums. Upon returning from one of his museum trips to view art, he began to combine art and numbers and created his first piece which harkened back to lessons from his days attending French high school during his childhood living in Turkey. This piece was a combination of numbers and colors. After seeing the piece, one of his instructors suggested that some people see colors as numbers and Cano's obsession with Synesthesia was sparked.

Pi Synesthesia Series

Cano asserts that the most fascinating and important number in the world is the numeric constant Pi.

He first took that fascination for Pi and paired that never-ending number with colors, based on chakras or rainbow colors, which became his series with Pi that he painted on canvases. He then proceeded to do a large-scale Opus 30 oval Pi Synesthesia on PVC. Opus 30 is not only tied to Pi colors, but also to the lengths of each numeral to add yet another dimension to the viewer’s interest (i.e., No. 1 was 3.5” long, therefore No. 9 in 31.5” long). He has since created several fascinating iterations of his Pi Synesthesia concept in various mediums.

Cano's Pi Synesthesia series includes 17 works in various media, including paintings jewelry and large, three-dimensional wall art.
