Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In this calligraphic painting, a silk-edged rice paper scroll displays the word "Dior" in a traditional oriental calligraphic fashion.

Titled "Fashion Painting", the work examines the extent to which the name of a brand (in this case, a fashion house) can hold its power of recognition without depending on its typical logographic attribution or distinctive product associations.

The artwork was executed by a calligrapher working in a souvenir shop in the heart of Singapore's Chinatown. Signed and imprinted with a personal seal by the artist himself, the artwork was then co-signed by me on the back of the scroll.

The art of Western names executed by Chinese immigrants in roman letters is present in many cities around the world. To me, this type of craft is a significant record that shows the evolution of ancient art through the proliferation and demands of souvenir culture in our present time, or as I like to put it, a remarkable piece in a future museum of globalization.

"Is it a painting about a fashion brand?" This was the third answer to the question "What is a fashion painting?", the creative brief I assigned to myself for Vogue Singapore's March "Creativity" issue.

Artist Profile

Born: 1989

Hometown: Caracas

Based in: Singapore

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.
