Oasis Canvas Painting Stolen From Manchester Art Gallery In Daylight Raid

A unique painting of iconic rock band Oasis has been stolen from an art gallery during a daylight raid.

Police said thieves swiped the black and white canvas work by artist Olga Tsarevska Lomax from the Art Gallery and Gift Shop in Bury, Greater Manchester, at 5pm yesterday.

The offenders smashed a window before grabbing the 80cm x 100cm painting, which features each band member including brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher.

It's also inscribed with 'otz2013' on the bottom right-hand corner.

PC Katherine Gosling said: "Quite what the masterplan behind this theft is I don't know, but a local business has been broken into and a one of a kind piece of artwork taken.

"This was the only piece taken and some might say we are therefore looking for an Oasis fan - similarly it may have been stolen to order.

"Regardless we are keen to find it and return it."

It comes as reports of a possible Oasis reunion have been spreading like wildfire after frontman Liam announced his band Beady Eye had split up.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 08000 555 111.
