Foster

Japan fosutaa
Foster Vertical Wall Scroll

フォスター is the name Foster written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Foster

China Fó shǐ té ěr
Foster Vertical Wall Scroll

佛史特爾 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Foster.

Riko / Yuriko / Noriko / Satoshi

Japan riko / yuriko / noriko / satoshi / satoko
Riko / Yuriko / Noriko / Satoshi Vertical Wall Scroll

This can be the Japanese female given names Riko, Yuriko, Noriko, or Satoshi.

A little awkwardly, when pronounced as Satoko, this means foster child.

Literally, the characters mean "village child."

Forever Family

China yǒng yuǎn de jiā
Forever Family Vertical Wall Scroll

永遠的家 is a special phrase that we composed for a "family by adoption" or "adoptive family."

It's the dream of every orphan and foster child to be formally adopted and find their "forever family."

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence. The third character connects this idea with the last character which means "family" and/or "home."

Qian

China gān qián
Japan ken
Qian Vertical Wall Scroll

This can be the Chinese ancient surname Gan or current surname Qian. In Japanese, it can be the surname Nukui, Susumu, Ken, Kan, Kawaki, Kawai, Inute, or Inui.

The meaning of this character varies a lot depending on context. These meanings include dry, clean, foster, adoptive, heaven, male, masculine, enduring, or continual.

The "Gan" version of this character was converted to Simplified Chinese as 干 in 1965. However, the "Qian" pronunciation is not associated with 干. Though to add to the confusion, there is an unrelated Simplified Chinese character 千 that romanizes as "Qian" and is also a surname.

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.
