We have a passion to create original and imaginative art and products that awaken happiness and a feel good sensation.

The Zolan Company was one of the first art agencies to co brand the fine art of Donald Zolan with global iconic brands. The Zolan brand with over 46 years in the licensing industry is recognized as a Classic Children’s Art Brand leaving a legacy to the world inspiring each of us to discover the child within. Zolan set the high standard for the agency with his values and philosophy about art and business. Following in his footsteps, the agency expanded to include young contemporary artists who share similar values and to give a platform to encourage these emerging talented new artists to follow their dreams.
Social licensing is an important cornerstone to our values to nurture a positive business with social responsibility. We strongly support all of our Artists and Designers in their programs to give back to humanity. The Zolan brand is dedicated to helping children’s causes through licensing the art of Donald Zolan who strongly believed in making a better world for our children.
Supporting women’s and children’s projects with animal rights has been a key mission of the Ivana Helsinki brand which is involved in worldwide social projects supporting women and children’s causes. One of her most recent projects was partnering with a sheep farm in Finland converting wool to children’s clothing.
Shane Koehler, a nature wildlife brand from Oregon, is very active in his support of environmental awareness.
We welcome all opportunities to expand our social licensing programs in helping women, children and the environment.
Our mission is to create and to develop art brands into recognized consumer brands working in conjunction with our Licensing partners to create art styles for their market, to adapt and create designs to the products, to share our resources of creativity and ideas, and to market to the broadest consumer base while maintaining the value and integrity of the brands.
And, we hope to inspire and encourage young artists to achieve their dreams.
