Born in Sao Paulo, with 40 years, André Gola has his work in advertising recognized by a plenty of national and international awards. (68 Cannes Lions, OneShow, D&Ad, Art Director, New York Festivals,…)
His simple drawings on different platforms involve the imagination of everyone and seek reflections on life or just a laugh.
His cartoons are published in The Beach journal and, his series about the World Cup in Brazil 2014 and Olympic Games 2016, was highlighted in the website of the British newspaper The Guardian.
His character "Suadinho", which is present in walls of several cities like London, Miami, New York, Moscow, Barcelona, Rio de January and São Paulo, his hometown.
By the end of 2018, after recurring headaches, he found out a problem that had been hidden for years: hydrocephalus. In this beautiful and touching mini-doc, we can see how art can be connected to the subconscious and express much more than we can imagine. https://youtu.be/Q_a2aV0bmb4
