Welcome to my...

Japanese/Chinese Calligraphy and Artwork Gallery


I've been with Oriental Outpost for 17 years. My main duties are Chinese translator and shipping manager.

We wear a lot of hats here, so sometimes I am the accountant, purchase manager, and artist relations manager.

In my spare time, I teach traditional Chinese dance, work as a freelance interpreter for business contracts, translate English books into Chinese, and teach Chinese language classes or tutoring.

-Ling Hua.

I co-founded Oriental Outpost more than 17 years ago when I was teaching English in Beijing.

I am a nerd, web designer, adventurer, and TV co-host in China. I was both a Marine and Soldier in the past. I'm currently in the U.S. Air Force (one weekend per month).


Life is far from boring for me.

If you're looking to buy hand-painted Chinese artwork or Japanese calligraphy at discount prices, you've come to the right place. All artwork here is fair trade, and created by independent Chinese, Korean & Japanese artists.

While this artwork is of the highest quality available, my prices are much lower than those of most art galleries, around the world & even inside China, Japan & Korea. The reason is, all these artists are my personal friends that I have developed while living and traveling in China and Japan. There is no middle man because all the artwork is mounted in my workshop just outside Beijing.

If you are looking for...
Custom Chinese Character or Japanese Kanji Symbol Calligraphy Wall Scrolls, Asian Dragon Artwork, Birds & Flowers, Asian Philosophy Art, Paintings of Horses, Cats & Kitten Art, Southern Chinese Peasant Folk Art, or any kind of Chinese wall scrolls.
...I have something for you.

There are 1382 ready-to-ship Chinese/Japanese wall scrolls and paintings for sale on my website.
And, a BILLION combinations of custom Japanese & Chinese calligraphy wall scrolls.
