Mission Statement

Lady Between the Lines Art Agency seeks to find common ground through the power of arts while engaging the richness of our cultures and international communities. We emphasize bringing together artists of all races in annual local and international art exhibitions, workshops and cultural events. LBL has also established a "Kids at Risk Program", which started with the growing and under-appreciated art of graffiti. We empowered local graffiti artists by developing their fine art skills, and taught them how to transfer their art onto canvas.

Description

ABOUT OUR ORIGINAL FOUNDER

Monticello Miller (1952 - 2011) was the founder and president of "The Lady Between the Lines Art Agency", in the US. He was the first to recognize and exhibit the artwork of young graffiti artists in Los Angeles. Monticello even re-defined graffiti art by referring to it as "Urban Hidden Literature". Among the first of the great Urban Hidden Literature artists were Alex Zendejas and David Martinez.

He used LBL to gather artists from around the globe. His slogan was "Artist to artist: together we are powerful."

Monti lived life fearlessly, and to the fullest. He was a painter, photographer, curator and musician. He was not afraid to pursue his dreams and was never swayed by what others thought of him. He lost his battle with stomach cancer in 2011. We miss him dearly.
