MIAMI, Florida, USA (sentinel.ht) – ‘The African slaves who fled to remote mountainous areas were called marron (French) or mawon (Haitian Creole), meaning “escaped slave”.’ Haitian artist Kervin Andre has depicted these warriors in his piece “The Maroons” which is now being featured by Bombay Sapphire for its Artisan Series.
Artists from all across North America have submitted their artwork to the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series competition for a chance to become the next grand prize winner. Viewers are asked to vote for the artwork they want to see move on to the next round of the competition.
