BT Artbox - London Calling

The BT Artbox Story

The good old British phone box was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to commemorate King

George V's Silver Jubilee.

This year we’ve got a Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 to look forward to, so we decided we needed to do something to celebrate.

That something turned into BT ArtBox. It’s a campaign that thrives on the nation’s artistic talent.

Across London’s streets you’ll find replicas of the Gilbert Scott phone box, transformed by the

imaginations of some of our very best creative minds.

Then later on we’ll be auctioning all the boxes off to raise money for ChildLine’s 25th anniversary.

 

“London Calling”

Artist: Peter Anderson

Location: Potters Fields

 

Peter's box 'London Calling' displays iconic black and white photographs of Joe Strummer and The Clash from the 1980s, hand printed onto the familiar red phone kiosk.
