J-A Dupont Castro is a french-colombian transmedia artist navigating the new media and performance fields. He uses projection mapping and performance to build bridges between distant disciplines and concepts.
His academic path in media studies, special effects for cinema and contemporary dance in Berlin brought him to develop a peculiar reflection on the body and technology. In response to the ambient hypervisuality and technocults, he develops an artistic language dedicated to the tactile sense: Touch Choreography.

Since 2014, he has been developing the practice of paintmapping, in which he choreographs light in space in collaboration with visual artists. He has collaborated with international artists of the contemporary art
and street-art scenes such as: Tape Over, BLO, Jonathan Ouisse, Oliver Vernon, Jumu, Damon Soule, Psoman, YANDY, SPHINX, Koey, Giulia Zanvit, Henri Lamy, Abdoul Khadre, Khwezi Strydom, V2M, WENC, Quetzilla, Allias, Kerozen & Ocu, Klebebande. 

J-A is in residency at l'USINE, Le Poët-Laval.
He is part of the digital art collective Alba Nox & Ondé.​

Jacques-André Dupont Castro est un artiste pluridisciplinaire franco-colombien navigant les sphères des arts performatifs et numériques. Il utilise le mapping vidéo et le mouvement corporel pour créer des ponts entre des champs conceptuels éloignés. Son parcours académique dans les théories de la communication, les effets spéciaux pour le cinéma puis la danse contemporaine l’a conduit à s’interroger sur le rapport corps/technologie. En réponse à l’hyper-visualité ambiante et aux technocultes, il développe un langage artistique dédié au sens du toucher: la Chorégraphie Tactile.
Depuis 2014 il développe le paintmapping, une pratique qui lui permet de chorégraphier la lumière dans l’espace en collaboration avec des artistes visuels. Il a collaboré avec les artistes internationaux de la scène contemporaine et street:
Tape Over, BLO, Jonathan Ouisse, Oliver Vernon, Jumu, Damon Soule, Psoman, YANDY, SPHINX, Koey, Giulia Zanvit, Henri Lamy, Abdoul Khadre, Khwezi Strydom, V2M, WENC, Quetzilla, Klebebande, Kerozen & Ocu, Allias. 

En résidence artistique annuelle à L'USINE, Le Poët-Laval.
Il fait partie des collectifs artistiques Alba Nox et Ondé.
