The word Edna is synonymous with the London nightclubbing scene. Edna, real name Mark McKenzie has been producing original artwork and production for an illustrious list of clients for over two decades. Mark’s first ever public show is arriving this October and the collection will include anticipated club classics, brand new pieces and of course a few surprises.

Edna has made his distinctive pop art décor for almost every major venue in the capital, spanning two decades. From such august establishments as Home House, L’Escargot and Kensington Roof Gardens, to the globally revered and respected Fabric Nightclub in East London, the legendary Ministry of Sound to Heaven in South London and then there’s The Egg in North London which has received several dressings, all created and curated by Edna’s innate ability to envision the events he covets, so well in advance.

Edna was intimately involved in one of the most legendary gay clubs the World has ever seen over its entire staggering 25 year history – trade, the first club to be granted a 24 hour dance licence back in 1990. Edna was asked to produce the décor for the final trade in October 2015 and these pieces will feature heavily in the exhibition.

Gallery opening times Thursday Friday 5pm-9pm
Saturday Sunday noon – 5pm
