About Passer le Flambeau

An imposing metal ‘flame’ shines in the sunlight and appears to emerge from its metal base. Hand forged from highly polished stainless steel; this bold abstract sculpture is by Tristan Laflamme Millette. The Quebec artist is self-taught but credits his education in the arts and his home environment for his inspiration. In French, ‘passer le flambeau’ means ‘pass the torch’—a fitting sentiment from a talented young artist whose own career follows his fathers.

“Sometimes light and delicate, sometimes dark and massive, my paintings and my sculptures remain the reflection of what lives in me, what concerns me and what stimulates me!” Tristan Laflamme-Millette

Born in 1996 in Quebec, Tristan was immersed in the world of visual arts from a young age. His father, Claude Millette is a well-respected sculptor; his mother a teacher in Quebec. In spite of significant health challenges first diagnosed at age six, he pursued the arts—both painting and sculpture with intense interest. He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Quebec and his works are permanently on display at the Galerie Michel-Ange in Montreal.
