Since 2009, when the Diego Voci Project began with a find on the internet at ARTIFACTCOLLECTORS.com thanks to Mary Trimmins and a handful of Diego aficionados, the DVP has archived more than 1,000 artworks by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) (VOH-chee). The DVP, our all volunteer group, purpose is to increase the awareness and the value of the great body of artwork created by DIEGO! We locate, collect and catalog Diego’s works as the only officially authorized DIEGO VOCI ARCHIVE by Helga Voci, Diego’s widow and sole owner of the DIEGO VOCI ESTATE.
Shown above is one of the many faded #photographs taken with the old fashioned camera that used film! The DVP has been featuring many of them, thanks to Helga who located and sent us a box of Index Cards she started keeping in the mid 1970’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, had suggested ‘somehow tracking to whom the DIEGOs were sold‘. Since 2009, the DVP has been searching the world for more “LOST DIEGO ARTWORKS”. Some of Helga’s cards have images, but the majority do not.
HELP THE DIEGO VOCI PROJECT FIND MORE OF THE #MASTER DIEGOs ART!
Helga used both polaroids and film to catalog DIEGO’s works. Shown below is the same DIEGO “Gasthaus” scene once it had been framed. Note how the FLASH however obliterates the female figure to the right. When taking images of your Diego art, note that the DVP is best suited to archive DIEGO’s artworks with reproducible (min. 300 dpi) straight-on squared images taken without a flash. Sometimes daylight is great too if not too bright! Front and back of artworks are preferred. Include any provenance you have!

When a new potential art collector made the first purchase, often it would be a clown by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee).
Then the new collector experienced the “Potato Chip Phenomenon”, being unable to stop buying just one Diego Voci painting. They become attracted by a unique magnetism in Diego’s masterly creations totally unconfined by just one genre.
NOTE: Google has assembled its own image collection of Diego Voci artworks. It’s awesome! Google “Diego Voci” and click “Images” or click here: https://www.google.com/search?q=Diego+Voci&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwix1pPQgO_YAhVP92MKHWldBbMQ_AUICigB&biw=1680&bih=944
The Diego Voci Project has been on worldwide search since 2009. We have only found about 25% of Diego’s works so far. The image of “Les Deux Clowns” above was taken on October 17, 1976 when purchased in Worms, Germany by proud owner JIM HOLT who contacted the Diego Voci Project to be cataloged in the Diego Voci Archive.

“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.”
Many more faces to come – and not only here – we have many more social media outlets like YouTube, #Pinterest, Facebook, and more! Search GOOGLE “Diego Voci Project”, you’ll find Diego’s bio on Wikipedia, too. Written by Coop #Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian, since 1973, you’ll be amazed at Diego and his art! The DVP has archived more than 1,000 of his works. A couple more 1,000 to go! Send us your Diego art – or let someone you know that owns a “Diego” to contact us on our

This is a faded old polaroid of this painting by Diego Voci titled “Composition XXI” purchased by Mr. Keener back in 1977.
Does Mr. Keener still own this painting? Based on the information provided by Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci (1920-1985), this painting was purchased at an auction back in 1977.
Diego had a way with creating stories within his abstract paintings. What would happen if you untangle and unravel this work of art?
The all volunteer project team assists the Diego Voci Estate archiving all of Diego Voci’s works of art. Any whereabouts on “Composition XXI” please contact us at email@example.com or visit www.diegovociproject.com
The exquisite #painting title “Lady with Fur” was originally owned by a Colonel (who has since passed away). This painting was seen in a run-down home. A neighbor to the run-down home, Cheryl Gossman, went over as people were throwing the contents of the home in the trash. Cheryl saw this painting “Lady with Fur” across the room and inquired about having the painting. The individuals clearing out the house said “sure”. This painting is one of about 4000 oil paintings internationally collected #artist #Diego Voci completed during his lifetime (1920-1985).
Now this painting is seen, viewed and admired each day. You too, may find a #Diego anywhere to own and enjoy. This is a truth amongst the collectors we have identified to date over 1000 Diego paintings and drawings we have cataloged in the Diego Voci Estate Archive.
Help us find the hidden gem works of art by Diego Voci. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We thank Cheryl for reaching out to us and for saving and sharing “Lady with Fur”.
