Light / Bright / Shine

China guāng
Japan hikari
Light / Bright / Shine Vertical Wall Scroll

光 is the simplest way to express "light" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

It can also mean ray or bright. Chinese tend to use a two-character word for light/bright, so this character is probably best if your audience is Japanese. Also, when pronounced Rei, this can be a Japanese female given name.

Hiro

China guǎng
Japan hiro
Hiro Vertical Wall Scroll

広 is the Japanese variant of 廣 (from Chinese).

The original meaning is wide, numerous, or to spread out. However, in modern Japan, this is used primarily as a given name. Most often it is romanized as Hiro.

This Kanji can also romanize as the names Yutaka, Hiromu, Hiromatsu, Hirotsugu, Hirosue, Hiroji, Hiroshi, Hirosaki, Hirokatsu, Kouji, or Kou.


In Chinese, this would romanize as guǎng where it still holds the original meaning and is a common Chinese surname. However, this 広 version is strictly Japanese, and most Chinese will not realize it's a variant of 廣. This will be true especially in the mainland where the Simplified Chinese is now written as 广.

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.

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.
