cāng qióng
sou kyuu

蒼穹 is a poetic way to express "sky" in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

It's like saying, "The blue dome of heaven", or a way to say "blue sky" within a poem.

蒼龍 is one of a couple possible titles for, "blue dragon" (occasionally also translated as "green dragon").

The first character means, "deep blue" or "azure".

The last character is dragon.

Clear Blue Sky

qīng tiān
seiten
Clear Blue Sky Scroll

青天 means clear sky, and/or blue sky in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

Sometimes this term is used in Chinese to refer to an upright and honorable official or politician (a very rare thing).

In Japanese, this can also be the name Harutaka.

Green Dragon / Blue Dragon

qīng lóng
sei ryū
Green Dragon / Blue Dragon Scroll

This title can mean blue or green dragon.

The first character can mean blue, green, azure, or celadon.

The second character means dragon.


This is mostly a Chinese title (especially in Buddhism). It will be understood but less commonly used in Japanese and Korean.

Blue Dragon / Azure Dragon

qīng lóng
sei ryuu
Blue Dragon / Azure Dragon Scroll

青龍 is a scholarly title for "Blue Dragon" or "Azure Dragon".

You'll find this title used in ancient Chinese literature and astronomy. This dragon has dominion over the eastern sky or eastern heavens. The Azure Dragon is also noted for representing the spring season. Also seen as an auspicious omen.

Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty canonized the five colored dragons as "kings". The Azure Dragon representing the most compassionate of kings.

In Japanese, this title is known with the same meaning but can also be a given name, Seiryuu.


Note, the first character can be written as 青 OR 靑. Same character, just two ways to write it.

qīng sè

Cyan Scroll

青色 is a Chinese word that is used for the color cyan.

This can also refer to a blue-green color.

In Japanese, this is an alternate way to refer to a blue color.

青玉 literally mean blue/green jade.


Note: This also makes sense in Chinese, but will be read as "blue jade", rather than being understood to be sapphire (藍寶石 is sapphire in Chinese).

Ch'ang Hon Taekwondo

Ch'ang Hon Taekwondo Scroll

蒼軒跆拳道 is the title "Chang Hon Taekwon-Do" written in old Korean Hanja.

This literally means, "Pale Blue Kick Fist/Punch Way".

The rather awkward official romanization is "cang heon tae gweon do".


Occasionally, you will see the first Hanja character written as 苍 instead of 蒼. it’s just a different way to write the same character. If you want 苍 instead of 蒼, just let me know.

Chung Do Kwan

Chung Do Kwan Scroll

靑濤館 is the Korean martial arts style, Chung Do Kwan, meaning, "Blue Wave School".

If you want this in modern Korean Hangul characters, click on the Hangul next to the Korean flag above instead of the button above.

Also Romanized as "Cheong Do Gwan" or "Ch'ŏng Do Kwan".

Green

The fresh green of nature

qīng
ao
Green Scroll

青 is nature's color and can refer to forest green, greenish-blue, or the darkest of greens.

青 and color represent nature, youth, young people.

In the same way, we refer to green bananas and the rookie being green, the same is true in Chinese and Japanese, where, in a certain context, this can mean immature, unripe, or young.

In Japan, this can also be a female given name "Haru". It can also be used as a given name (for either sex) in China.

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.
