Fear No Evil

China bú pà xié è
Fear No Evil Vertical Wall Scroll

This literally means, "no fear evil." Chinese grammar and word order is a little different than English. 不怕邪惡 is the best way to write something that means "fear no evil" in Chinese.

The first character means "not," "don't" or "no."
The second means "fear."
The last two mean "evil" but can also be translated as sinister, vicious, wickedness, or just "bad."

Fear No Evil

Japan aku o osore nai
Fear No Evil Vertical Wall Scroll

This is "Fear No Evil" in Japanese.

Japanese grammar and phrase construction is different than English, so this literally reads, "Evil Fear Not."

The "evil" Kanji can also be translated as "wickedness."

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

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.
