Two close up views of this Koi Fish Painting mounted to the silk brocade wall scroll. The one on the left shows how the whole wall scroll looks like hanging on the wall. At a closer look, you can feel the breeze brushing the leaves, and in the wind you can smell the flowers. In such a harmonious setting, the two koi fishes are swimming freely and peacefully. You will also find the irregular grain and tiny spots on this special kind of xuan paper. This is intended for the antique feel of the art work.


Fish is an expression of abundance in Chinese culture because the Chinese symbol for fish is 鱼(yu2) which sounds exactly like “余” that means “abundance". This is a “visual pun” or what’s known as a rebus. Rebuses are plentiful in Chinese culture because the multiple tones of the Chinese language (e.g. there are 4 tones in Mandarin) allows for many puns.


This Chinese Koi Fish painting of two koi fishes represent harmony, love, happiness and peacefulness in your home.


The four main Chinese characters in the top right corner of this Chinese koi fish painting are “年年有余” which reads “nian nian you yu”. The first two repeated characters mean “every year”; the third means “have” or “has” and the last one means “abundance” or “surplus”. So together they are a proverb meaning “There is surplus every year”. The two lines next to these four characters are the artist’s signature and the time of this Chinese koi fish painting.


A full day of work went into this piece. The attention to detail really shows. This is the kind of art that you will be proud to hang on your wall....


You simply can't appreciate the beauty of this piece in the small picture on this webpage.

Koi Fish Painting in relation to Feng Shui


Feng Shui is the art of creating a healthy balance of our lives and environment. In Chinese “Feng” is Wind and “Shui” is Water. These are the two natural elements that flow and circulate freely on earth, creating a Life Energy known as ‘Chi’ that shapes our living environment.


The ‘Chi’ energy can be found in various forms identified as “5 elements” i.e. Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth.


These five elements work together to establish a healthy flow of ‘Chi’ through space which brings balance and harmony to the environment, whether it is your home or office.


There are many symbols used in Feng Shui. Fishes are one of them. Koi Fish Paintings have been depicted in Feng Shui Paintings throughout the centuries.


Besides being a joy to look at, my Koi Fish Paintings may help to improve one’s overall luck by harnessing the power of Feng Shui.


A very common place where you may find Koi Fish Paintings are in the Chinese Restaurants. The next time you are dining in one, keep an eye on the wall paintings or decor. You can most certainly find some kind of Koi fish decor. Displaying Koi Fish Paintings in restaurants bring abundance in wealth.


Koi fishes are also known as living jewels of the pond. Our Koi Fish Paintings attempt to capture these alluring Koi fishes in their graceful nature. With their vibrant colors and graceful motions, the Koi fishes make excellent Koi Fish Paintings.


Story Behind Koi Fish - DRAGON’S GATE


According to Chinese legends, there once were 9 Koi fishes, swimming upstream in the Yellow River heading towards the Dragon’s Gate.


To get to the Dragon’s Gate, they had to endure lots of hardships and struggles. Along the way, they had to swim against strong currents and rapids to get upstream.


Finally, when they reach their destination, the last hurdle was to jump over the Dragon’s Gate. A feat that is almost impossible to achieve. With pure determination and tenacity, the Koi fishes succeeded in jumping over the Dragon’s Gate, and they were all transformed into magnificent Celestial Dragons.




Koi fishes became a symbol of determination and success. Develop a “Never give up” attitude. In times of adversities, keep looking ahead and walk towards the sun and you will never see the dark part of the shadow.


Hard work and determination will carry you through and with a little luck on your side, eventually you too, will reach your destination…Your very own Dragon’s Gate!
