Alfie Caine (b.1996) is a British artist who lives and works in Rye, East Sussex

Caine's artistic practice centres on crafting expansive worlds that operate at all levels; in the architecture and fantasised countryside beyond their windows, down to the minutiae of cutlery, tiles, and fabrics. Navigating through dreamlike architectural landscapes becomes both a refuge from personal challenges and a powerful avenue for self-expression.

The former architecture graduate has been featured in gallery exhibitions internationally, including his inaugural solo exhibition What Lies Beyond, Union Gallery, London, UK (2021), Moments of Calm, JARILAGER Gallery X Lotte Gallery, Seoul, South Korea (2022), High Humanity, Jack Siebert Projects, Paris (2022), Whitechapel Gallery Art Icon Auction, London (2023).
