Tong's works are linkage to the diversified society. Indeed, our visions are brought to the real social space and daily life through the painter's perception. The meaning of Tong's works is that the ultimate goal of artistic creation no longer lies on the issue of harmony in aesthetics, but to convert art directly into spirit of human life, and from that into art. From this the painter enters into the space of the daily life of the others and the society. Therefore, from these pictures, we can understand and interpret the relationship between the state of mind of human being, the space of daily life and social environment.
He previously worked as an oilfield worker, instrument worker, and even a calligraphy teacher in Beijing Language University.
