Both fields have visual meanings that are simultaneously expressive and communicative. Both disciplines play a complementary collaboration role in enhancing the beauty or functionality of a design, structure, or work of art. Art is the expression of imaginative skills in visual form in the making of works such as drawings, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, graphics, or textile designs (Peterss & Olabode, 2018).

These artistic styles conveyed the clients' taste, creative sensibilities, and identity. The artistic installations charm bodily exploration based on individual preferences for artistic acumen while experiencing the interaction of creative styles within space. Architecture is a delicate balance between functionality and beauty where form and purpose converge. Architecture ensures that a building or structure becomes more than just masonry work but a work of art resonating with the identities and preferences of its inhabitants. Art provides a platform through which creative skills are rendered in visual form through sculpture, drawings, or paintings.
