Jai Benteau


Former graduate of both the Alberta College of Art & Design in Calgary, as well as the International Academy of Design in Montreal, Jai Benteau has had his hand in the creative pot for as long as he can remember. Back in the day he ran Evolve Clothing & Design, a staple in the underground scene throughout Canada producing urban street wear and cutting edge design for festivals, parties and nightclubs. Over the years he’s since co-founded AERA Creative, a multidisciplinary design studio and now works as a freelance creative mind through Zephyr Studios.

Matched in par with his artistic talents, has always been his love for music. As a dj for almost 20 years and a producer for the past 5 years, he’s been an active contributor to the music community through his monikers J-Byrd, Bass Caravan and now Zephrym. He also co-founded and was the artistic director for Le Cirque de la Nuit which strove to set a new bar for stage and show productions here in Calgary. Both through Le Cirque de la Nuit, Bass Caravan and the storytelling, performance group Ethoterra, he’s worked with the performance community to blend together stunning performance art, cutting edge music and next level visual splendor.
