Born in Peru in 1965, he lives and works in Brussels.

In the late 1990’s Jota Castro ended his career as a diplomat and decided to devote himself totally to the field of art. Since then he has used photography, sculpture, video, and installation to address social issues as both artist and activist. Castro explores and exposes, not without humor, the world of politics thus defending intellectual freedom and democracy. The artist reinterprets facts, connecting current events with his own personal history. His more recent works deal with problems caused by the global economic crisis and developments in European politics.
