Two signed works by British artist Damien Hirst have been stolen from a London gallery, police said Tuesday.
The two works, both from Hirst's colourful series of "spot paintings", are together worth around £33,000 ($54,000, 39,000 euros), Scotland Yard police headquarters said.
They were stolen from the Exhibitionist Gallery in west London in the early hours of Monday. The thief forced open the gallery's front doors and made off with the two etchings in a hatchback car, said Scotland Yard.
