The artwork sits by the door of the former Tredegar Medical Aid Society with the portrait looking out over the town library. Artist, Stewy, who worked on the piece said: "If Nye was here now he would still be fighting for the future of the NHS and our libraries, so this is such an appropriate location for the artwork."
