Maroon Artists Boodoe and Adogo make name in Amsterdam

The Tropenmuseum in the Netherlands has invited Maroon artists Obentiye Boodoe and Oscar Adogoare  to participate in the highly acclaimed  ‘Art of Survival-exhibition that centers around the origins and present existence of Maroon communities in Suriname.

Obentiye  traveled to the Netherlands to attend the opening ceremony of the exhibition. Adogo, however, was prevented to do so due to his work obligations. Both artists have garnered excellent reviews for their work by visitors of the exhibition.
