Hi, I am Ali, the artist behind 3 Dotted Penguins. I am a printmaker, teacher and surface designer living in Zurich, Switzerland.
I use the medium of block printing to explore pattern and surface designs. All my designs come to life through the meditative and slow process of carving blocks by hand and building up prints and patterns by placing inked block after block. My work is inspired by my daydreams about the (far away) sea and my everyday adventures (near and far) and influenced by my engineering background and my love for geometrical shapes.
