According to Toronto Police, a Banksy print was removed from The Art of Banksy exhibit, which is in the Dundas Street West and Bloor Street area.

Toronto police now say the Banksy artwork that was reported stolen is a $45,000 piece called Trolley Hunters.

"Due to the investigation, we will not be commenting further at this time", said Starvox Exhibits president Corey Ross in an emailed statement.

Banksy, whose identity remains a mystery, is a painter, graffiti artist, and social activist, considered one of the world's top political artists.

Lazarides has billed "The Art of Banksy" as the largest collection of the United Kingdom artist's work ever put on display, containing about $35 million worth of art.

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

With the exhibition entitled Banksy, Greatest Hits: 2002-2008, some of the artist's most well-known artworks will be displayed, including Girl and Balloon (2006), Love Is In The Air (2006), and Show Me the Monet (2005).

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.

"It was (always) a very wide spread of people", he said.
