Art thieves steal $30,000 worth of work from painter

Art thieves steal $30,000 worth of work from local Auckland Painter



One of the stolen works

Jimmy James Kouratoras, 45, has been painting since the 80s with over twenty years as a film scenic and has had a number of profession exhibitions since 2013.

In the early hours of Thursday morning two thieves stole three of Kouratoras' latest paintings by walking straight onto his gated property in Onehunga and towing his van.


Mitsubishi delica DJF963 navy blue with roof racks.

This was targeted theft (especially as there were far more valuable vehicles in the yard) and Kouratoras has received anonymous tip offs that his paintings have been the target.

These three paintings were to go into a 2017 catalogue and are worth $30,000 - prospective buyers are not happy.

Kouratoras is also a father of three children.
