Somos Europeos! Jan 22 2020


Costa del Sol in the Southern part of Spain in midst of busy streets filled with tourists and pigeons lies our lovely Marbella office “Advocate Art SL” We are an Independent Spanish business looking after the very important European Art Licensing and Children’s book Illustration Market

Advocate Art has separate businesses in ASIA, the UK and the US, now in its 25th year it has established itself as the Worlds No 1 Agency Representing leading artists who produce children's and decorative work to commission or license. The EU office is now in its 4th year!

From this sunny area, we have our hard working, coffee loving, art enthusiastic team specializing in helping us entertain our European clients. There is no Brexit here, we are proud Europeans!

Within this office we have been able to break the language barrier and launch all our international artists in the European, South American and Middle Eastern market. 

Size is not a factor when you have big personalities. 

At our Marbella office we work hard to reach out and maintain long lasting relationships with both our amazing artists and best clients in Europe, South America and Middle East. 

We handle all the technicalities so the artists can focus on being creative in a problem free environment and producing their best work, we research the market and make sure everyone’s work stands out. Meanwhile, we pride ourselves in having good quality artwork, rather than quantity. 

We want our clients to end up with the best work! Over the past few years we have grown big time and plan to continue to do so!

Precision is key! 

Preparing work of the highest quality is important to us. While we can get work done fast, we are also very efficient. We are a creative and multidisciplinary group with a background in illustration and/or art. Our office is one team (you can even call us a family) and we are able to rely on our teammates to help us double check our work, assist with new ideas and make the best coffee in all of Marbella for a quick pick-me-up. 

Making new friends is the highlight of our day! 

We love to meet our clients in person. Make sure you come by and see us, we  would really enjoy showing you our latest portfolios, previously published books and other printed products. Can’t come see us? Not to worry, we can come to you! Simply reach out to set up a date. 

Advocate Art was founded in 1992, with a group of illustrators who liked the idea of having an agent but not the other things that often came with that. We call our ethos four “F.A.C.T.s”: Fairness, Ability, Creativity and Trust. It’s about doing the right thing and being with the right people. We think our principles set us apart from conventional agencies, sticking to them has meant we have attracted the most creative illustrators and artists who in turn attract (with a little help) the best clients.
