An artist has painted a mural of angelic hospital workers at a Chichester hospital in honour of those who work for the NHS

Worthing-based artist Horace painted his ‘Angel Rainbow’ piece at St Richard’s Hospital on Tuesday having previously donated another mural to Worthing Hospital.

Horace said his latest work – which shows NHS workers in different colour uniforms, with angelic wings and halos above their head – had been commissioned in part by Western Sussex Hospital’s organ donation committee.

“I wanted to do something optimistic here, a celebration of the real people who work in hospitals every day to help others,” said Horace.

“They are like angels, I couldn’t do their job. It’s a colourful and fun piece. I wanted it to be cheerful.”
