Mallett was recently asked to take part in a sculpture installation to mark the 25th anniversary of ChildLine, he free confidential helpline and online service for young people. The installation was part of the BT ArtBox project – a vast, open-air exhibition taking over London’s streets. He painted one of the famous British red telephone boxes, titled ‘Ring-a Royal-Phonebox’.

He chose to paint the royal’s on the phone box, and went onto explain his idea, “I was always intrigued by the idea of the Royals in a phonebox and started with a huge Union Jack rippling over the back of the box, following the contours of it’s iconic shape. I then put three members of the Royal Family in each of the windows. Her Majesty the Queen, beneath the royal standard looking quite excited to be on the phone with her beloved corgi at her feet.”

“Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in that stunning blue dress on her iPhone with a golden pram behind her. We’re all excited by the prospect of a baby and it would be nice to speculate!”

“The third window shows Prince Harry in that classic Usain Bolt pose – it is the Olympic year of course – with an old fashioned push button A and B phone and one of those postcards so often found in phoneboxes today! Except this one has a altogether more acceptable message!”
