Mengdi Prints

My Story

Hi! My name is Mengdi, and I'm a designer and printmaker from Beijing, China.

I'm currently exploring linocut and woodcut prints. Printmaking makes me feel connected to myself and the world around me. It involves an amazing balance between creativity, patience and problem-solving. From ideation and sketching, to carving the block and refining the details, all the way to inking and pressing, there are lots of iterations and experiments with strokes, contrast and rhythms. It’s like a ritual and a journey, allowing me to feel grounded and grateful, embracing solitude and all kinds of possibilities.

My inspirations come from feelings, emotions, people around me, and meaningful connections in seemingly random things. Nature and animals often help me to express what I see and tell the stories.

I started trying out linocut in my spare time a few years ago, when I was working as a user experience designer in the US. In the summer of 2019, I moved back to my hometown, Beijing. My passion for printmaking continues.

Thanks so much for stopping by my website. Your support means a lot to me.
