An artist who gained prominence during the first lockdown with their NHS Angels piece has been commissioned by a Bury St Edmunds hotel to create a new mural.

Rachel List, a contemporary artist, was inspired by the Angel Hotel's name when choosing the concept of the artwork which is free for both guests and the public to view.

She said: "Being called the 'Angel' Hotel for me instantly brings forward images of white feathers; the hotel itself is also incredibly stylish image-wise.

"So, when they asked for a mural with a single angel wing, it was my aim to create something subtle that you could almost walk by."

Several other pieces of Rachel's work are currently on display at the Moments exhibition of modern art in Moyse’s Hall Museum until September 30.

Fiona Bovill, group sales and marketing manager for Gough Hotels which owns the Angel Hotel, said: "We invited Rachel List to create an artwork at the entrance to our hotel as her ‘Angel’ work was very appropriate for us.

"We are very pleased with the mural which leads guests perfectly into the hotel."
