About Yeon Agency.

We connect you to over 150 illustrators and designers around the world -

from the West to the East, global to local. We connect you with the talent you want.


Yeon Agency, headquartered in Singapore, is a company created by several artists with dreams. Our aim is to combine art and industry to help you improve the creativity of your products. At the same time, helping artists to succeed in the business environment and improve the virtuous circle of art and commerce. We adhere this goal with integrity, openness, enthusiasm and service-oriented attitude.

We exclusively represent 150 handpick leading local artists and top Western artists with collaborative agreement with agencies such as Advocate Art (UK & Spain), Astound US (USA), Illo Agency (UK) and others. We have local artists who are familiar with Asian culture and foreign artists who cooperate with U.S. and European publishing houses. From cartoon style, hand-drawn style to realistic style, our painters can meet your style needs for different projects.

We provide services related to translation, art direction, taxation, authorship, and statutory regulations, etc., and help you resolve differences in time difference, culture, and language from painters. We can help you take care of everything without any fees. We bring job opportunities to the painters, so our expenses will be deducted from the commission of the artist. You don't need to pay extra handling fees.

We connect you with the talents you need and establish a direct communication channel. We use online meetings to allow you to communicate directly with artistic talents. We hope to provide you with the best platform and creative talent.

Some of our represented painters come from five leading European and American illustration agencies, and Yeon is their sole representative in Asia. In addition, we are continuing to expand the number and quality of painters to provide you with the best and most trendy artists.

As a professional artist myself, I have always being dedicated in connecting art into our society and daily experiences. I am fluent in both English and Chinese as I was raised in Taiwan, then spent over 10 years in the United States.

I am also a certified Japanese language speaker. My multicultural background equipped me to be a good communicator across culture and language barriers. I would love to connect with you, and use my profession to best assist your needs.

The Internship Program

We run an active internship program here at Yeon that we hope many students or career seekers will find very beneficial. We attract students in art history, design, illustration and related courses. We also employ bilingual agents so we attract language students as well.

We forge close links with many colleges and also invite students in for Q&A sessions where they can get advice on their portfolios. We were sponsors of the illustration exam question for the D&AD board and offered competition prizes including cash of £5000!

If you would like to see the inner workings of the leading artist representation agency, then the best way is to spend some time with us as an intern. You will share in our daily tasks such as folio management, site maintenance, project managing, etc but no tea making I promise! You will learn how artists are briefed, what’s hot, and what you have to do as an illustrator to get work in the real world. We will give you a reference that will make a future employer cry, for the right reasons of course. Finally, as a souvenir you get a sought after Advocate courier bag and we will pick up lunch and travel expenses if you complete the term. The minimum term is 10 working days - Maximum 30.

There is no mistaking that interns have become essential to the running of this busy agency. We get to spread the Advocate message around tomorrow’s art and design professionals - internationally. We are also a recruiting platform (10 of our current staff were recruited from internships) and we get help, not cheap labor.

We also welcome international interns. If you have basic spoken and written English, we would love to hear from you. We would accommodate you in a local hotel and provide a meal and travel allowance. Interns must be EU citizens or have a valid work permit to work in Singapore.
