Catholic Beat August Art of the Month!

Happy Saints is featured as August Art of the Month in the Catholic Beat!

Extract: August’s contemporary Sacred Heart piece, perhaps the happiest looking Sacred Heart image ever created, is by Singaporean artist Victor Teh whose “Happy Saint” pieces feature a happy image of the saint with a quote by him or her. “I was inspired to create the Happy Saints after noticing that many pictures of saints seem out-dated and may not appeal to the current generation of children.” he says. “I spent some time exploring contemporary cartoon styles and was most inspired by the simplicity of Japanese ‘kawaii’ (‘cute’) manga art.”
