The investigation revealed that the pieces, worth £33,000, were stolen from the gallery on Blenheim Crescent,  west  London  between 3am and 3.30am on 9 December.

The works were reportedly stolen in the early hours of Monday.
The Guardian of U.K reports that CCTV pictures obtained from the gallery “show the suspect entering by forcing the front doors open, before driving away with the art in a dark-coloured hatchback-type vehicle towards Ladbroke Grove.

The works must have been from the artist’s dot painting period so suggests the report, which says the stolen pieces features “multicoloured dots, both the stolen pieces are signed by the artist.”

But the thieves were still not identified as authority urges “Anyone with information is asked to contact the serious acquisitive crime unit at Notting Hill police station on 0208 246 0230 or, to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111”.
