Bummer. That is a sort of back-handed compliment though (art thieves make me think of Robert Wagner). What I wonder about is: How can they display it? What's the point of having a painting that you can't hang up? Go figure. If they'd just parted with a bit of cash, they could say "Hey, look at the piece of art I just bought..." Low-lifes are everywhere.

The Scream is stolen at the moment, but there is four of them. Lets see if they try and sell it, that would be stupid.

Hey, Thieves, if you can get it back on the wall, we will wave the head hunting party.

Man that sucks. I have had art stolen from public and semi-public places at least five times. It is a great piece and I hope you get it back soon.

There problem or not, an artist's honor is to see their work in public places for all to enjoy and to see their "children" from time to time.

I'm so sorry to hear about this!

It's extra sad to think of all the people that won't be able to enjoy your fantastic painting Kirby

I hope it makes a speedy return! I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Yikes! I feel bad for both you and the bar Kirby. I've been to the Lucky Tiki a few times, so I have seen it before. When this kind of crap happens to you, it makes you really wonder what is wrong with people!?!?! I hope the painting gets recovered and the perps get what they deserve.

That's a big shame !!!
I think someone told me that someone stole one of Squid Freaky Tikis, too.

It's soo bad that some people don't respect other people's belongings.

It's a great painting. I love it !!! You done an awesome work, Kirby
