Boo Saville is one of the main artists to have worked with Gigi in recent years and has just opened her third solo show with the gallery. Known for her biro drawings in particular, for the auction she has created one of his trademark spliffs, and the other of his Venetian velvet slippers or 'furlane' which he has in a myriad of colours. "Gigi's red slippers remind me of Gigi running around Trolley Gallery in Redchurch Street in his sarong shouting in Italian to someone down the phone. The colour to me is Gigi, bright fiery red but they are velvet so they are very soft too, the way he is. They are also really battered and well travelled and of course very stylish."
