Two works by the artist Damien Hirst – featuring his trademark multicolored dots - have been stolen from a gallery in London.
The signed artworks are worth a total of £33,000 ($54,170) and were stolen from the Exhibitionist Gallery in west London between the hours of 0300 and 0330 on Monday.

The larger work, called "Pyronin Y", was produced in 2005 and is worth £15,000. The second piece, "Oleoylsarcosine," is dated 2008 and is worth £18,000.
Philip Hoffman, who heads the Fine Art Fund Group investment firm, said the value of the pieces came from Hirst's signature.
