Babushka dolls, Matryoshka dolls, Russian nesting dolls – call them what you like – there’s no doubting the cuteness of these gals and sometimes guys. 

As homage to the babushka doll, I have dolled up a few works literally and taken the girls to the streets.


A series of three works featuring small, medium and large dolls flips the usually bright babushka doll colour scheme. The gals sit on a popping blue background that ties the three works together. See the Works page for images of Babushk-ed Once, Babushk-ed Twice and Babushk-ed Thrice.


The Retro Babushka piece (pictured above) features stencils of a pattern on Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, Russia. See Works page for more details on this work.


To share the babushka love, I spruced up a door on Rutledge Lane in Melbourne CBD. Featuring colour blocking and a rainbow of babuska dolls, you can see the making of the door on the linke Instagram account.
