TradeMark, aka UK artist, Mark Wardel, is the painter whose figurative work explores the interface between art, commerce,
and desire. After finishing art school, he became known as the “court painter” of the Blitz and other London café society hang outs, producing portraits of Boy George, Steve Strange, and Japan’s David Sylvian.
“Savage” is produced by East Creative Agency, the team behind some of London’s most outrageous club nights and events – including Sink The Pink and XOYO’s Gloria’s.
Glitterbox’s opening party takes place on Friday 12 June, featuring Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Horse Meat Disco, The Revenge and Simon Dunmore, joined by unique performers from dance crews hosted by “Savage”.
