BiographyWe have very little information about this creator. In about 1948, Fernand Costa, then around forty, is one of a number of patients cared for in the psychiatric hospital of Ville-Évrard. Drawing delicately colored stylized banknotes, between 1948 and 1950 he donates several examples of his work to Jean Dubuffet.
