In China, Since the 20th century, From the impact of western culture, its own traditional values began to collapse. In the intellectual and artistic world, it is either " Stop the Confucian ", which is a total negation of traditions; So that is the west wind turns to east, using western culture to transform their own traditions. In short,Chinese tradition is equated with backwardness, and for a while it becomes the drosses that everyone abandons. However, since recent years, with the changes of international environment, especially the rise of China's economy, Chinese people have started to re-examine and rediscover their own traditions, which has also led the trend of return of the traditional literary and artistic. It is in this trend that the artist Tong Lingfei stands out.
Tong Lingfei graduated from the School of Printmaking of Shandong university of Art and received strict and systematic modern art education. However, although the Tong Lingfei has completely mastered the modern modeling language, it is rooted in the tradition and has a special preference for the ink style and creation style of traditional Chinese painting. Therefore, after the graduation, He chose to pursue the so-called avant-garde art instead of going with the tide and proving its contemporary nature with some superficial innovation. Instead, it went down to the heart and returned to the tradition completely. On the other hand, He personally went back to the history of literati painting, especially went deep into the early Song and Yuan dynasties traditions to find the ancient meaning of detached and elegant charm. In this way, the Tong Lingfei has found a new way in his paintings, forming his own ancient and vigorous language style, and providing a unique visual experience of literati for the contemporary art in China.
Tong LingFei’s paintings, especially focus on landscapes, but not along the path of the landscape painting in the Ming and Qing dynasties, but back to Song dynasty painting tradition, expression his painting on silk, with particular emphasis on its delicate, realistic, to use elaborate hook, rigorous, to represent people's understanding of landscape of the world and the heart of fear; At the same time, on the way of creating the environment, taking strange peaks and different mountains as the subject matter, and the composition of virtual and reality, it is more of an imposing manner that brings people a profound echo and grand mountains. There is no doubt that the artistic pursuit of the festival is the source of the cultivation of "literati painting", namely the profound a huge and broad spiritual starting point. His exploration and excavation not only aims at tracing the origin of "literati painting", but also, more importantly, expands the spiritual and visual dimensions for the contemporary art..
