Toronto police are investigating a report of a stolen Banksy piece from a Toronto exhibit curated by one of the artist’s former brokers.
The exhibit, by curator Steve Lazarides, was not endorsed by the artist himself and was set to open Wednesday.
Each Lazarides and his publicist refused to substantiate the report or touch upon the investigation.
The exhibit was set to consist of 80 of the artist’s items and comes with a ticket worth of $35, charged by Dwell Nation and Starvox Displays.
Requested earlier what the extremely anti-capitalist artist may suppose of viewers having to pay to see his work, Lazarides advised CBC Information earlier this week he felt the artist would like his work be on show than saved away in a collector’s basement someplace.
Police have to date launched no additional particulars apart from to say 11 Division is investigating.
