Two Damien Hirst Artworks Have Been Stolen In London
Scotland Yard say two works of art by Hirst have been stolen from a gallery in Notting Hill.
Scotland Yard have announced that two works from artist Damien Hirst were stolen from the Exhibitionist Gallery in Notting Hill early Monday morning.
The missing artworks are called "Pyronin Y", created in 2005, and "Oleoylsarcosine", created in 2008, and feature multi-coloured dots. Together they're worth £33,000.
Det Sgt Jon Lightfoot has said: "It appears the suspect has specifically targeted the two pieces." Scotland Yard think the heist involved only one person who may have left in a car. Lightfoot added that the artwork: "would have been visible in the back of the car and we are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to please come forward."
