Mondrian's art is definitely shaped by a strong appreciation for math, especially geometry and particular ratios. He expressed these his thoughts about the key role of ratios in shaping effective art in the magazine "De Stijl." Of course, you can also see the influence of geometry directly, in the design of many famous paintings.
