What is Going On with Vatican Art?, with Eric Armusik

Catholic artist Eric Armusik joins Tim to talk about the current trend at the Vatican to embrace ugly art at the expense of so much beauty it could showcase. Eric paints classical figurative art. His work is reminiscent of the old masters. His works are inspired by grand and vivid murals that he first saw in Gothic cathedrals as a child. But what caught my attention was a social media post from Eric that highlighted something we all may have noticed but may not have thought much about, which is how the Vatican seems to have gotten away from this sort of beauty and realism in its own art. https://traffic.libsyn.com/forcedn/shapingopinion/Vatican_Art_II_auphonic.mp3 Check out this FULL EPISODE at YouTube:   https://youtu.be/St9f7UwZe3U Check out this FULL EPISODE on Rumble:  https://rumble.com/v4u5wll-whats-going-on-with-vatican-art-with-eric-armusik.html LIKE & SUBSCRIBE for new videos as soon as they are posted: https://www.youtube.com/@shapingopinion/videos Stay up to date by signing up for the Shaping Opinion Substack here:  https://shapingopinion.substack.co Find the full audio show wherever you get your podcasts: Apple — https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/shaping-opinion/id1371714253 Spotify — https://open.spotify.com/show/6yOg769bSm9hJn9zhwkunl For all episodes and to learn more about Shaping Opinion at: https://shapingopinion.com Follow the Shaping Opinion Podcast on all social platforms: Twitter/X - @Shaping Opinion, Instagram - @Shaping Opinion, on Facebook at Shaping Opinion and don’t forget to join the “Shaping Opinion Podcast Listeners” Group on Facebook.
