Fernando Costa (or "Costa") is a French artist living and working in Périgord, near Sarlat. He is an autodidact, having worked in hospitality jobs for most of his life. In 1998 he decided to dedicate himself full time to artistic creation. As contemporary art lover, in 1998 he started collecting and recycling road signs. He cuts them out,, sandblasts them and recomposes images by welding the pieces onto large metal plates, creating original pictures.
Costa exhibited his work all across Europe and in the US in prestigious private and public collections.
