David da Costa, originally from Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, is a renowned Brazilian artist who has dedicated over 50 years to his art, and over the past 18 years has displayed his works at the Art Fair of Ipanema. Da Costa graduated from the distinguished Colmeia dos Pintores do Brasil as well as from the School of Fine Arts of Rio de Janeiro. Through his many years dedicated to his art, he has captured innumerable awards, among them the Bronze Medal at the National Exposition of Fine Art.


"I began my artistic career in 1948, with professor Levino Frânzeres, an academic by excellence. I frequented the Fine Arts Institute with some of Brazil's famous contemporary artists. I used to be an academic artist and then became a modern artist when I studied with Iberê Camargo, one of Brazil's most noted artists of the 20th century.


"I would define my work as simplification of forms and geometry, though nowadays I acknowledge Impressionist elements in my paintings. I depict a most varied assortment, from seascapes to regional Brazilian peoples”.
