The "TOMODACHI" BT ArtBox

for The BT ArtBox Exhibition 2012.

To raise money for the 25th Anniversary of Esther Rantzen's "Childline" Charity, this 260cm hand painted sculpture is the stunning transformation of the iconic British 1935 Sir Giles Gilbert Scott K6 BT Phone Box.

"TOMODACHI" was standing tall on Newport Place, the heart of London's China Town, for public display from the 18th June until the 16th July 2012, coinciding with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It was then sold by Sotheby's at the exclusive auction event held in the National Portrait Gallery.

The BT ArtBox Exhibition brought new life to the classic Telephone Box kiosk and as a key reminder that it still plays an important role as a life line for abused children seeking help.
