Two signed works of art by Damien Hirst worth £33,000 have been stolen from a gallery.

Both pieces were taken in the early hours of Monday morning from the Exhibitionist Gallery in Notting Hill, west London.

The missing works are Pyronin Y and Oleoylsarcosine and feature Hirts’s multi-coloured dots.

Worth a total of £33,00, Pyronin Y was created in 2005 and has been valued at £15,000.

Oleoylsarcosine was made in 2008 and is worth £18,000.

It is believed that the artworks were taken between 3 and 3:30am in a targeted job by one individual who may have left in a car.

Det Sgt Jon Lightfoot said: “It appears the suspect has specifically targeted the two pieces.

“The items 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.”
