Hi, I am Ali, the artist behind 3DOTTEDPENGUINS. I am a printmaker, teacher and surface designer living in Zurich, Switzerland. 


3DOTTEDPENGUINS started as a block printing adventure in 2018 to claim back my creativity and relax at the end of a packed day filled with my day job and family life. My soon to become obsession with block printing and pattern design became my almost daily nightshift, well documented on my Instagram account, and I never looked back. Since then I started screen printing, opened an Etsy shop for my block printed originals and screen printed textiles and started teaching block printing in person (and soon online).


You can find new work on an almost daily basis on Instagram. My shop is always stocked with a selection of original paper block prints, screenprinted fabrics such as tea towels, t-shirts and tote bags as well as high quality stationary items such as greeting cards and post cards. You can also find 3DOTTEDPENGUINS on Pinterest and Facebook.
