AGI Open 2023 Jonathan Castro Alejos Portrait BW 2000x2000px

Originally from Lima, Peru, Jonathan Castro Alejos is a graphic designer and multidisciplinary artist based in Amsterdam who works with sound, video, installation, and performance. His explorative practice oscillates between the real and the fictitious, assembling and reassembling collected raw materials embedded with different qualities and identities to reconstruct them into surfaces, objects, visual languages, and soundscapes.

Jonathan’s work has been exhibited internationally, most recently at WG Kunst, Haus der Statistik, Van Gogh Museum, Vitrine Gallery, KV Leipzig, Crone Gallery, Ssense Montreal, and Nike House of Innovation-Shanghai. In 2019 he was an artist in residence at Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, the Netherlands, and he holds a MA FA+Design from Sandberg Institut in Amsterdam.
