This journey began in 2011 in Montreal, Canada, when light painter Patrick Rochon decided to make 3-dimensional light painting tools that would make voluminous traces of light. It took two more years to name the tools, open an online store, and share his discovery with the light-painting community worldwide. So, in 2013, the Liteblades® were officially born.

Since then, light blades have been spreading everywhere, influencing many by creating this new culture and becoming one of the main basic tools for light painters globally. 

To quote Sergey B. Churkin, head of the Light Painting World Alliance, "Patrick has made a marvelous impact on the light painting world through the creation of his signature light painting tools, “Liteblades”. Light painters have shown a radical interest to these quality tools, as almost every 2nd light painting image in the world is created using his innovative technology".
