Designer and 3D Artist

Alper Dostal is a 3D artist and designer from Vienna, Austria. After graduating with a degree in graphic and communication design in 2011, he quickly found work in this field. Over time, he developed an increasing interest in 3D, to the point where it has become an integral part of his work as a full-time graphic designer. He's created visual concepts, artwork, designs, and 3D typography for brands like Teka, General Electric, and Samsung.

3D design enables him to explore the physically impossible, such as melting wood or rubbery concrete. He often looks to the creations of others for inspiration, such as Dieter Rams's minimalistic designs and Salvador Dalí's surreal paintings. His Hot Art Exhibition, a series of visualizations depicting melting works of art, has been displayed in Bergamo and at the Art Basel fair in Miami, as well as featured in a variety of art and design magazines.
