Do you know her already? Have you seen her somewhere? The popularity of this Baba has exceeded my wildest expectations! I know that she has already been sighted in Australia, North America, South America and in many European countries…. There are those who decorate their homes with it, and there are those who use her to decorate their… bodies! I love it on t-shirts and wear it as a brooch! I also know someone who has it on his bathroom door….
How it all began
How to describe the history of this Baba (or should I call her a lady?)? This is a challenge for me, because it is accompanied by a lot of feelings. Let‟s start at the beginning. I met this Baba first in an old photograph from Praga from years ago, and then over time she made her way into a collage. The black and white Baba that you see before you was created in Warsaw‟s Praga-Północ district, during a Linocut printmaking workshop.
There will be a text here someday, but I’m not ready for it yet.
BABA as BABA
BABA IN A RESTAURANT
Baba has also arrived in Austria, Neufelden, at the restaurant “Fernruf 7”! “Leute, Feuer, Musik” is the motto of this place. May the baba be well there and the food be good!
BABA AS A TATTOO
As Baba wanders about the globe, I get to hear stories, memories and sightings from people all over the world. For example one man from Brazil, who tattooed an image of the Baba on his calf, told me that the she reminds of his own grandmother, who used to fish in the Amazon Rainforest. Then there was Tali from Israel, who tattooed an image of the Baba on her arm,. She revealed to me that it reminded her of her grandmother and when she used to go to the market where she always bought the biggest fish!
Do you want to get Baba as a tattoo? Do the right thing and respect my creative work. Simply contact me to ask for my permission and acquire the right to use it.
BABA ON T-SHIRTS
I also print Baba on textiles from a stencil. Get a T-shirt that you bought in vintage stores and let the fun begin! Baba can be printed in pink, blue, black…. Do you have an old T-shirt or other piece of clothing that would be better with a Baba? You can send it to me and I will print a Baba on it!
