Babina thinks that art, architecture, and sculpture are historically linked by an unbreakable thread. “We find examples of paintings and sculptures having a direct influence on architectural design,” he told Bored Panda. “It is easy to find the art hidden behind an architectural shape or see reflected the geometry of a building painted on a canvas. It is impossible to conceive of the history of art in exclusion from that of architecture.”
“Painting, sculpture, and architecture have always been complementary disciplines that influence each other and grow and develop along common paths.
