Jonathan Castro Alejos is a graphic designer and musician from Lima, Perú based in Amsterdam. He graduated from Toulouse Lautrec Institute in Lima. Using graphic design as a colourful depiction of living spirit, his projects always move in search of possible futures under the concept of “design fiction”.

His attention is currently focused in the research of ancient cultures and shamanism in the digital age proposing the idea of visual and sound experiences as cosmic rituals.
