Pieces of dreams

[Provided to China Daily]

When Gao Youjun graduated from the School of Mathematics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1989, he decided to pursue his dream of drawing by completing a major in design at the Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University.

After that, he entered the prosperous advertising industry, when almost every advertiser was fairly enthusiastic and eloquent.

Gao's style was always deliberate and he presented his freehand stories-which are lively and intuitive, and more than just beautiful words-in a soft voice. It was during these years that he began to enjoy drawing in his spare time using his pen-name, Tango, which is now more recognized than that of Gao.

A good advertiser requires a creative mind. Luckily, his alter-ego Tango helps Gao harness extraordinary insight, imagination and endless inspiration.

At the end of 2010, Tango uploaded an extremely whimsical doodle, "How Does An Elephant Pick His Nose", on Chinese social media Weibo. After this initial upload, Tango continued to upload one drawing each day for more than three years.

It is Tango's dream to draw non-business comics with which he can help others and himself. He hopes such drawings can act as an escape for urbanites that suffer from the pressure of life and work, allowing them to feel the beauty of the world.
