ANDRÉ GOLA

Mental health for me is being well with myself and with life. I take care of my mental health with a lot of dialogue, love and art. Always talking to my friends and families about everything. The people we love also help me to always look on the bright side of things and learn from difficulties. In fact, always being willing to learn, I think it is another daily exercise that I do and it is good for my head. Understanding and respecting our limits is also essential. But for sure to keep it all balanced, it is not an easy task for anyone.

Andre Gola is an artist, creator of the character "Suadinho" and executive creative director of the AlmapBBDO agency. As a publicist, he has already been recognized with many awards at national and international festivals, he has won 68 Lions at the Cannes Lions World Festival to date.


In the last 5 years, it has been giving life to "Suadinho" on blank pages, on social networks, on stickers, collabs with products and brands and urban interventions in different locations around the world.
