In this copy of Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa", a headless Gioconda takes the viewer's attention to the subject's attire.
This artwork's intent was simple: to take a well-known painting and modify it so the fashion portrayed could become the centre of the artwork's attention.
First purchased on eBay, and later "decapitated" by myself using an ordinary woodworking handsaw, this oil-on-canvas copy of the iconic relic dates to the late 1980s, according to the seller of the painting.
The painting's remaining part was duct-taped on the back of the artwork, both as a present to its future collector and a record of the artwork's irreverent creative process.
"Is a fashion painting a painting about clothes without a person at all?" This was the second answer 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.
