Banksy print stolen in Toronto, police investigating theft

By The Canadian Press on June 14, 2018.

Toronto police say they are investigating the theft of a print by renowned street artist Banksy from a building in the city’s west end.

An unauthorized exhibit of Banksy’s work organized by his former manager Steve Lazarides opened in the same area on Wednesday.

Lazarides has billed “The Art of Banksy” as the largest collection of the U.K. artist’s work ever put on display, containing about $35 million worth of art.

Police say they received a call about the missing art piece on Saturday and say they’re investigating.

Representatives from the exhibit were not immediately available for comment.

The show, which includes sculpture, screen prints, canvases and multimedia pieces runs until July 11.
