Wave

China
Japan nami
Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

波 is the most simple way to express wave in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja.

This single character means wave. In Japanese, this is pronounced "nami" which is the same "nami" as used in the word "tsunami" (harbor wave).

If you like to ride a surf board, and/or "The Way of the Wave" is your life, this could the scroll for you.

The additional meanings contained in these characters include ripple, storm, surge, breaker, wandering and unrestrained.

Big Wave

China tāo
Japan nami
Big Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

濤 is the Chinese character for "Big Wave." It suggests a wave unlike most, strong and powerful.

濤 is technically also a Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja but it's not commonly used in those Asian languages. Pronunciation in Japanese and Korean provided above for reference only. Just order this if your audience is Chinese.

The Way of the Wave

Japan nami no michi
The Way of the Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

波の道 is the simple way to write "The Way of the Wave" in Japanese.

I added this at the request of several customers. 波の道 is not a very common Japanese phrase.

波 = Wave
の = Of
道 = Way
The word order is the opposite of English. Most Japanese phrases that end in "の道" are translated to English as "The Way of..."

Technically, you could write "波道" as a shorter version of "The Way of the Wave". However, without context, 波道 can mean channel or suggest a path to redirect ocean flow.

The Way of the Wave

The Tao of the Waves
China làng zhī dào
The Way of the Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

浪之道 is a great title for a surfer whose lifestyle is entwined with the surf and waves.

This can be translated a few different ways:
The Way of the Wave
The Dao of the Wave
The Tao of the Waves
Note: Dao and Tao are the same character, just sometimes romanized differently.

Tsunami / Tidal Wave

Japan tsunami
Tsunami / Tidal Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

津波 is the most common way to write tsunami in Japanese.

This version should be considered "Japanese only," as it's very uncommon to see this version used in Chinese.


Note: Can also be the surname Tsuwa in Japanese.

Tsunami / Tidal Wave

China hǎi xiào
Japan tsunami
Tsunami / Tidal Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

海嘯 is a common way to write tsunami in Japanese and Chinese (there's more than one way to write the same word).


Note: Can also be written as 津波, 海嘯 or 海啸.

Tsunami / Tidal Wave

China jīn làng
Japan tsunami
Tsunami / Tidal Wave Vertical Wall Scroll

津浪 is another way to write tsunami in Japanese and Chinese (there's more than one way to write the same word).


Note: Can also be the surname Tsuha in Japanese.

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.
