A man has been caught on camera stealing a Banksy art work from an exhibition in Toronto, Canada.

The Art of Banksy show is an unauthorised showing of the artist’s work from private collections, featuring the “Trolley Hunter” print, valued around £26,000, and about 80 others. It’s been curated by Steve Lazarides, the street artist’s former agent of 10 years.

As the BBC reports, authorities in Canada are currently investigating. Footage was released of a man entering the space around 5.00am, taking the print, and exiting in a hurry.

“Trolley Hunter” first debuted in 2007. It depicts three hunters preying on several shopping trolleys.

Recently, the British artist revealed he had a piece rejected by the Royal Academy after submitted the artwork anonymously. His “Vote to Love’ artwork is now formally part of the summer exhibition
