Some of his prints are hand-made using traditional printmaking techniques such as, Japanese wood block “Mokuhanga” and silkscreen. While other prints are designed and produced digitally using Risography printing, and high quality digital printing.
Inspired by Japanese minimalist aesthetics and their expressive calligraphy, Ali Almasri represents Arabic calligraphy in a contemporary manner while emphasizing its authenticity and tradition.
