Andrew Cain was born in San Leandro, CA and grew up in Modesto, CA. After studying art at the Modesto Junior College, he moved to Brisbane, AUS where he attended Queensland College of Art and in 2009 graduated with a BFA in Printmaking. While studying Andrew had a chance to work with major galleries showing work, installing art, and opening exhibitions. When he returned in 2010, he became active in the local art communities showing work in Fresno, Merced, Modesto, and Sacramento. He became a board member of the Modesto Art Museum in 2010 during this time and later served as the Executive Director of the Museum in 2015. In 2013 he became the Instructional Support Technician for the Art Department at Stanislaus State. He is currently making films and pod casting with a local production company, The Horrific Network and working with local art organisations. His work is about the eternal search to find connections between people, defining what it means to have and share an identity. Obsessed with storytelling he uses references from cartoons, comic books, horror movies and television from his childhood to explore identity, reality and emotion connecting the viewer to his work through nostalgia.
