Baba Yaga | Red Dot Design Award

The digital painting portrays Baba Yaga and Vasilisa, two figures from Russian folk tales. Baba Yaga’s malignancy is emphasised by the dominant shape of the figure, while a skull refers to her cannibalistic impulses. On the other hand, Vasilisa’s simplified features express timidity and naivety. The doll, which is impressively positioned in front of the girl, plays a key role in the story. The dramatic quality of the scene is further enhanced by juxtaposing contrasting colours, such as red and green or blue and orange.
