“Trolley Hunter” was on display at ‘The Art of Banksy’ exhibit.
A Banksy painting valued at around £26,000 GBP (approx. $35,000 USD) has been stolen from a large exhibition of the artist’s work in Toronto. Titled “Trolley Hunter,” the painting first appeared in 2007 and is currently owned by a private collector. In CCTV footage of the theft, someone can be seen entering the gallery at around 5 A.M. local time before making off with the painting.
The Art of Banksy exhibition is an unauthorized collection of Banksy’s works, with more than 80 works worth a combined $35 million USD curated by Steve Lazarides, Banksy’s former agent. Toronto Police have released the surveillance footage, and are currently appealing for more information about the theft.
