We are delighted to be exhibiting works for sale by Birmingham based product designer and illustrator, Thomas Parry.

Thomas Parry is a local illustrator trading under the name MadeOnTheCanal. As the name suggests, he lives and works aboard The Menace, a narrow boat based on the Birmingham canals.

The skyline of Birmingham is changing at a rapid pace. All quarters and districts of the city are developing at different rates. Fortunately many buildings are now listed, but we have lost some beautiful gems over the past few years.

Thomas aims to documents the city’s development is his own unique style of 3-dimensional illustrations. 

The buildings selected for this exhibition span a couple of centuries and include a variety of architectural styles. Some are familiar and popular landmarks, while others are more obscure, all however are equally important. The Jewellery Quarter and surrounding area is rich with history, and the goal of this exhibition is to encourage people to explore, take a closer look, and wonder what stories the buildings hold.
