April’s art of the month is a little different. This time around, we decided to let our readers vote on Instagram and on Facebook on which artworks appealed to them for the month.
And surprise, surprise! It’s the cover of “FIZIK-LAH!” – a brand new book on physics written by Zamir Mohyedin and Mohd s. Faiz – that was voted as Eksentrika’s Art of the Month for April – it received a total of 53 likes and loves!
The design was created by Fasrulisham Ramly who faced many hurdles when pitching the design to the publishers. We’re glad Simptomatik Press obliged. The design fits the sempoi and yet extremely cool way physics has been presented to Malaysians. We dig it! Grab the book which is only going for RM20 here!
Here are more artworks which caught our attention last month!
