Police are searching for the smooth criminal they say removed a $100,000 piece of art from the wall of The Marc Ecko art gallery earlier this month. Investigators say the man walked into the Marc Ecko gallery on West 23rd Street at around 6 p.m. on August 4th and removed a piece of art hanging on the second floor. The man rolled up the piece, put it into a tube and walked out, gotta love it. The artwork titled “Untitled – Calvin Klein” was done by Brooklyn-based graphic artist Kaws.
