Francesco Grillo hit the headlines last year, when she was accused, alongside her sister Elisabetta, of defrauding Charles Saatchi and his former wife Nigella Lawson of £685,000 with company credit cards. The sisters were found not guilty in December 2013.

Francesco has teamed up with another former Saatchi employee, Sharrine Scholtz, to launch a gallery-without-walls, Laissez Faire Art. Sholtz has worked at the Serpentine Gallery and Rankin’s studio—she was also a founding director of London’s Fold Gallery.

At present Laissez Faire Art have five artist on their site including FADwebsite favourite Wayne Chisnall.
