Chaos

China hùn dùn
Japan konton
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Japanese, Korean and Chinese word that means absolute confusion, disorder and chaos.

This more directly refers to primal chaos or primeval chaos.

When reading something about Chinese mythology, you may find this term used to describe the formless mass before creation.

Chinese scientists sometimes use this word to refer to the nebulous state before the universe was formed or nebulosity.

In some context, this could mean "a state of confusion".

Chaos / Anarchy / Confusion / Mayhem

China hùn luàn
Japan kon ran
knob
ribbon top
knob

The first character means confused, dirty, muddy or mixed.

The second character means confusion and disorder.

Together, these characters mean chaos, and sometimes extended to mean a type of anarchy.

This term is often used in a less-than-literal term to describe anything in disarray. Someone might use this word in a sentence like, "My kitchen is in a state of chaos" or "my life is so chaotic".


Japanese ChaosPlease note that Japanese use an alternate/simplified version of the second character of chaos - it also happens to be the same simplification used in mainland China. Click on the character to the right if you want the Japanese/Simplified version of this two-character chaos calligraphy.

Stir the Chaos

China jiǎo dòng hún dùn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This was added to our database at the request of a customer. This means "stir the chaos" in Mandarin Chinese. It is proper grammar and meaning, but is not and ancient Chinese phrase or title.

Peaceful Chaos

China píng jìng de hùn luàn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is NOT a typical Chinese phrase. It was added to our calligraphy database at the request of a customer. These are two dynamically-opposed ideas, but this is the way to express them together.

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 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 nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

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.
