Alec Monopoly explains that he was in a room in a gated community house in Miami when his brother Avery Andon panicked.
Andon said his white Range Rover was stolen Thursday, and inside were four pieces of Alec Monopoly, three of which were exhibited during Art Basel Miami Beach 2014.

“My heart fell,” said Alec Monopoly, the boyfriend of Alexa Dellanos, adding that the pieces have a personal “historical” value. “As an artist, each piece you create is like a piece of yourself”
Officer Kiara Delva, a spokeswoman for the Miami Police Department, said detectives are looking for surveillance videos and other leads. The artist is offering a $ 15,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the pieces of art.
Alec Monopoly has shown his work in MOCA Bangkok and the Moscow Museum of Multimedia and Design. He is a co-owner of the Eden Fine Art Gallery in Miami Beach.
His art collections include Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and Snoop Dogg. His inspiration is almost always Mr. Monopoly, Richie Rich, Mr. Burns of the Simpsons or Scrooge McDuck.

“They spend hours and hours and even years thinking about concepts for your work, so when they steal your art it is something very personal”, said the artist adding that “there really is no market to sell them on the black market. If he sells them, we will probably find them and track where they are, ” he added.
Delva is asking anyone with any information to call the Miami Police Department at 305-579-6111 or the Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers, at 305-471-8477. Alec Monopoly wants tracks also by email, at email@example.com
