In this artwork, a white pair of Nike "Air Jordan" sneakers with the laces tied together is tossed over the top bar of a broken artist canvas.
The act of tying and throwing a pair of shoes onto raised wires from power lines is part of several different folk sports and cultural practices all around the world.
Titled "Corner of Avenue B and Avenue C", the name of the artwork comes from the notion of being transported to an urban place.
The piece belongs to a series of three "fashion landscapes", where a single element of fashion is used to convey the notion of a place or a scenery.
"Is a fashion painting just the act of taking fashion and appreciating it as a painting: colour, form and texture?" This was one of the answers to the question "What is a fashion painting?", the creative brief I assigned to myself for Vogue Singapore's March "Creativity" issue.

Having worked in the creative industry for a decade, Eduardo Enrique had his first foray into the visual arts when he was propelled by a strong urge to produce artworks as a form of social commentary. Drawing from his background as a Creative Director where he motivates his clients to understand the underpinnings of culture and its societal impacts, his artistic praxis similarly calls attention to the nuances that pop culture can have on the human psyche.
The artist explicitly denies talking about his nationality, as he maintains that one should not be judged based on their geographical origin. To that end, Eduardo looks towards elucidating universal human conditions as he believes that there are intrinsic qualities that connect us beyond borders and boundaries.
