Your Chinese / Japanese Calligraphy Search for "Speed"...


Speed

China gāo sù
Japan kousoku
Speed Wall Scroll

高速 means "high speed" or "in high gear" in Chinese and Japanese Kanji. In old Korean Hanja, it also means "high speed" but can also be a nickname for "rapid transit."

高速 is the best selection if you want to say "speed" in regards to your race car, race boat, or lifestyle. You need this word, which literally means "high speed," as the Asian word for "speed" alone does not suggest whether you mean fast or slow.

Speed Control

Wan Geub
China huǎn jí
Japan kankyuu
Speed Control Wall Scroll

緩急 is often used as a Korean martial arts term, "speed control." It's also one of the 8 key concepts of Tang Soo Do.

In other context, this can mean: priority; pace; tempo; slow and fast.

Fast

Fast, as in a race car
China kuài
Japan yoshi
Fast Wall Scroll

快 is the single character for "fast" in Chinese. This applies to race cars, air planes, rockets, etc.

This can also mean rapid, quick, speed, rate, soon, to make haste, clever, or sharp (of knives or wits). In some context it can mean cheerful or happy.

快 is not a common choice for a wall scroll but if you're a speed freak, this may work for you.


Note: In Japanese and Korean, this often just takes the meaning of cheerful or pleasant. It can also be the given name Yoshi in Japanese.

Swift Fierce and Daring

China piāo hàn
Japan hyoukan
Swift Fierce and Daring Wall Scroll

This Chinese, Japanese, and Korean word means "swift and fierce," referring to one's fierceness, daring, and speed.

Bolt of Lightning / Lightning Attack

Tokkan
Japan tokkan
Bolt of Lightning / Lightning Attack Wall Scroll

This Japanese word can be translated as "lightning attack," "charge," or "rush." Basically it's about a fast run or attack at the speed of lightning.

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.

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.
