Many of our readers will be aware of the new Banksy pieces installed in LA over the last view days to promote the US launch of the Exit Through The Gift Shop movie. Earlier today we were reading message via Twitter that one of the pieces, "the security guard with the Koons dog" had been stolen/ removed from it’s original location at 410 S. La Brea Ave. possibly by the building owners. JetSet Graffit have just sent out an email with this footage above of the piece being removed.

JetSet Graffiti have suggested that the Ace Gallery in Los Angeles organized the removal and impending unauthorized sale of the artwork. They have the full story over on their website here.
