Toronto police say Trolley Hunters a $45,000 Banksy artwork was reported stolen on Sunday

The $35-million Art of Banksy exhibit, which is not sanctioned by the reclusive street artist, just opened at an industrial building on Sterling Road, in the city's west end.

Canadian police are investigating the reported theft of a Banksy artwork from an unauthorised exhibit of his work in Toronto.

Its disappearance was discovered after police responded to a call over an alleged break-in at the exhibit site.

The show is made up of about 80 original pieces, several of which are owned by private collectors.

A piece from the newly opened Banksy exhibit has been stolen.

The piece is Banksy's Trolley Hunter print, which is worth $45,000.

Mr Lazarides worked with the Bristol graffiti artist for about 10 years, though Banksy himself is not involved in the show.

A London art gallery selling prints of the piece describes Trolley Hunters as a comment on food availability and consumption.

"It's a lovely piece and we hope to get it back", said Ross, adding that he would not comment further during the police investigation.

The artist is known for his street pieces infused with political and social commentary, and his work that has gained him an worldwide fan base.
