#DIEGO VOCI “FACES SERIES” PART TWO

The Artist of a Thousand Faces”  Antonio Diego #Voci (1920-1985) internationally collected artist is mostly referred to as “Diego”. Part Two, much like Part One, reflects the exquisite mastery of Diego’s versatility. Unknown to many Diego #aficionados he created what appear to be ‘portraits’ of real people who posed – Diego actually did most from memory. Diego’s figurative #art includes the clear precision of the detailed features in faces shown in Part One of the “FACES SERIES” (click on link at bottom of post).

Diego mastered #figurative, #abstract, #cubism, and fantasy faces such as clowns. Having traveled to the #Southwest of US in 70’s and early 80’s Diego was fascinated by #Native Americans, one shown here:   https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/?s=FACES&submit=Search

Having traveled throughout Europe and Morocco, Diego was also inspired by the indigenous people – again creating all from memory. Children were also depicted in various styles by Diego. Helga Voci, Diego’s widow, kept #Polaroids. The faded and definitely not as vivid as what you may have on your walls (or wish to have on your walls?)  Diego loved life and lived to paint. In his words,

“I must to paint. To me is important the white canvas.                                                     On the canvas I begin again. This is my life.”
