Girl Power Reigns Supreme Through Art for June 2017!

Wonder Woman might have played a role in June 2017, when much of the artworks we received and selected were extremely feminine in nature. However, there were a handful which we found to be awesome for their dark and gritty feel. Enough talking! Here they are, a selection of artworks along with a special one which is crowned Eksentrika’s Art of the Month for June 2017.   By June 28, we thought that Wallace’s artwork of Wonder Woman would be crowned Eksentrika’s Art of the Month for June 2017.

“Music – Crazy Fingers – Piano Keyboard” by sueduda, 2007 Tunes to observe that are uniquely diverse, From ringing bells to soprano singing bellas, Even the chirping birds form charming chorals awakening dawn hours, Beat boxing boys strike a chord as rhythmic young fellas, Vibrating vocals repeating verse after verse, Pulsating voices from baritone to tenor welcoming dusk happy hours.

SHORT STORY | An empty soul in Universiti Sains Malaysia by Peter Soh

Artwork credit Pinterest “You have been getting thinner and thinner ever since I know you three years ago. I am so worried for you but I have ran out of ideas on how to help you out,” Alex said to me, and he could not stop crying. He was worried of my deteriorating health – I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa in my second year of doing PhD and things did not seem to get any better after that. Many would find it bizarre to find a Malaysian who dislikes eating, even shocking if that person stays in Penang....
