Police are searching for a burglar who swiped a piece of art worth $100,000 from the Marc Ecko art gallery Thursday evening.

The alleged thief walked into the gallery at 40 W. 23rd St. at about 6 p.m. and removed a piece of art hanging in the hallway of the second floor, according to police.

The artwork, “Untitled (Calvin Klein),” was by Brooklyn-based graphic design and graffiti artist KAWS, and featured acrylic over an ad poster for Calvin Klein jeans.

The burglar rolled up the artwork, put it into a tube and walked out of the building, police said.

The man pictured in the surveillance video still provided by NYPD is about 5 feet 11, according to police. He was last seen wearing a dark green hoodie, blue jeans, a tan baseball hat, dark sunglasses and running sneakers. He was also carrying a dark backpack.
