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.

POETRY | Magic of Music by Navadharini Sunder

“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.
