Sexy

Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the closest word in Chinese that matches the way we use "sexy" in English.

In China, this could be used to refer to a hot girl, or a hot car.

In Japanese, this is translated as "sexual feeling."

This is not really appropriate for a wall scroll.

Sexy

Japan irottpoi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This word means "sexy" in Japanese.

This is not really appropriate for a wall scroll, so consider this for educational purposes only.


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

Sexy / Voluptuous

China yāo yàn
Japan you en
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

妖艶 means sexy, fascinating, voluptuous, or bewitching in Japanese Kanji. This is specifically in regards to women.

This has a dictionary meaning of flirtatious or bewitchingly pretty in Chinese. However, in practice, this would refer to a sexy but bitchy woman in modern China.

妖艶 is also a word in old Korean Hanja; however, I have not confirmed how it is perceived in Korean culture.

This may not be appropriate for a wall scroll unless your audience is Japanese only.


艷 Note: The second character can also be written in the alternate version shown to the right.

Beautiful Woman

China měi lì de nǚ rén
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the best and most polite way to express "beautiful woman" in Chinese.

Note: Some people may like the simple 2-character 美女 way to express this but there are some bad connotations with that, so better to stay with this longer and more respectful title.

Beautiful Girl

China měi lì de gū niang
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the best way to express "beautiful girl" in Chinese.

Beautiful Princess

China měi lì de gōng zhǔ
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is how to write beautiful princess in Chinese. The first two characters mean feminine beauty, or rather a way to say beautiful that only applies to women. The middle character is just a connecting character. The last two characters mean princess.

Beautiful

China měi lí
Japan birei
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a two-character word used often in Chinese, old Korean, and ancient Japanese to express beauty.

I've had a few requests for a "two-character beautiful" and this is by far the best word. This is not a common word for an Asian person to want on a wall scroll. However, you will see it commonly used as an adjective in phrases, stories, and titles throughout magazines and signage in China.

This word can also be translated as gorgeous or lovely.

Note: This word is not common in modern Japan.

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.

single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

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.
