He wasn’t trying to steal it. He was trying to fix it.

The best part is he appears to be stealing a painting from some seaside tourist “gallery.” I’m surprised he didn’t go for one of the seagulls-on-driftwood pieces.

Go big or go home, dude.

I can hear the artist’s agent putting their spin on it right now:
“Oi, Nic! Good news about your piece mate, people are committing crimes in order to take it home!”

This is basically how the Gardner Heist happened.

Art thief foiled

I was hoping that the gallery owners literally wrapped the guy in foil. Now THAT would have been ART!

We’ll never catch him now. (I wondered what “foiled” was doing in the headline. I didn’t see anywhere that he’d been caught, except on camera.)


#10

If he gets caught, standing in the gallery wrapped in foil as an art piece for a predetermined number of days could be an interesting form of punishment. “Foiled art thief”.
