Survivor

China xìng cún zhě
Survivor

倖存者 is the most common way to express "survivor" in Chinese. It literally means "lucky/fortunate surviving person."

倖存者 is kind of an odd selection for a wall scroll but there is no better way to say survivor in Chinese calligraphy.

Survivor

Japan sei zon sha
Survivor

生存者 is how survivor is written in Japanese. 生存者 is a strange selection for a wall scroll in Japanese culture, so take that into consideration before you choose this for your calligraphy artwork.

Live Strong

Japan tsuyoku ikiru
Live Strong

強く生きる is, "Live Strong" in Japanese. If you are a cancer survivor, or simply support Lance Armstrong's ideas, this is a nice selection for a wall scroll.


Note that we are in no way affiliated or connected to Lance, nor his foundation.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Radiance

China guāng cǎi
Japan kousai
Radiance

光彩 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for radiance.

Other meanings include: luster; splendor/splendour; brilliance.

光彩 is the kind of radiance you see when a person's arrival brings happiness and joy to the room. Or the radiance on the face of a new bride etc.

If you delve into the dictionary, other forms of radiance will refer to isotopes emitting radiation. 光彩 is not related to radiation and is not the kind that causes cancer.

In Japanese, this can be several female given names such as Misa, Hikari, Hiiro, Teresa or Arisa. And a more unisex given name of Kousai or Kosai.

Live Strong

China jiān qiáng shēng huó
Live Strong

While hard to translate directly, this is the best way to write "Live Strong" in Chinese. If you are a cancer survivor, or simply support Lance Armstrong's ideas, this is a nice selection for a wall scroll.

The first two characters mean strong or staunch. The last two mean living or life (daily existence). While the Chinese version is the reverse order of "Live Strong" it is the only way to write it in a natural form that is also grammatically correct.

Note that we are in no way affiliated or connected to Lance, nor his foundation. This translation is offered because of multiple requests from customers whose philosophies or ideas match those of the Live Strong idea.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
