Some may call it the gillyflower.

維奧莉特 is the Mandarin Chinese transliteration for the name Violet.

Violet

Japan vaioretto
Violet Vertical Wall Scroll

This is the name Violet written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).


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

Violet

China jǐn
Japan sumire
Violet Vertical Wall Scroll

菫 is the Japanese Kanji for violet.

This can refer to any flower of genus Viola, esp. the Fuji dawn, Viola mandshurica.

This can also be the Japanese name Sumire. 菫 is also commonly written in Katakana as スミレ.

菫 is a variant of Chinese character 堇 (jin3) which has the same meaning.

Purple / Violet

(2 character version)
China zǐ sè
Japan murasakiiro
Purple / Violet Vertical Wall Scroll

紫色 is the two-character Chinese, Japanese and old Korean title for the color violet / purple.

The second character basically means "color," so this literally means "violet color."

It's more common to add the "color character" in Asian languages than it is to say "color" after the name of the color in English. Therefore, this is a very natural way to express "violet" in Asian languages.

Purple / Violet

China
Japan murasaki
Purple / Violet Vertical Wall Scroll

紫 is the single-character Chinese, Japanese and old Korean title for the color violet / purple.

The difference between violet and purple is not really distinguished in Asian languages. However, sometimes a character for "light" is added to the front of this one, which might be closer to the meaning of violet.

Violet Color

China gàn
Japan kon
Violet Color Vertical Wall Scroll

紺 is a slightly-rare Chinese and old Korean title for the color violet or purple.

In Japanese, this refers to a very deep blue color.

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.
