Alfie Caine is a British artist who lives and works in Rye, East Sussex. He is specializing in painting cozy and colorful residential scenarios surrounded by a fantastical atmosphere.
Caine’s paintings present a fantastical but tangible experience of everyday environments, merging residential scenes with natural landscapes to create dream-like spaces tinged with familiarity. Inspired by the architectural and design concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk (a total work of art), Caine conjures up complete residential scenes: drawing from his imagination everything from the building’s architecture down to the minute details of floor tiles, ceramics and cutlery. (…) Caine’s background in architecture is evident in the painstaking attention to detail paid to every aspect of his work. He draws from a series of detailed preliminary sketches to construct the composition and refine shapes and colours. In a nod to the designers whose work he has collected or admires, Caine’s works often incorporates iconic design objects.Alfie Caine
