#DIEGO #FACES SERIES – PART FOUR

Once again we want you to see Antonio DIEGO Voci’s versatility in our part four of the #Faces series. Note the drama of the #Pierrot to the calmness of the #Mother and Child. Note also the sense of young versus old.  Best is how Diego could render the surreal with tenderness and beauty in  “Mädchen mit #Mandoline” owned by Barbara W.

CELEBRATE #2018! BIGGER FAME AWAITS #DIEGO

We the volunteers of Diego Voci Project are gaining momentum in our worldwide search for the lost works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego #Voci (pronounced “VOH-chee” 1920-1985).

The Diego Voci #Project has published images of nearly 1,000 of about 4,000 #paintings scattered around the globe.

“Le petit téâtre ” (Oil on canvas 80 x 100 cm #381-817)

A great example is this newly discovered image of a Diego Voci #masterwork of actors awaiting to go on stage. It was purchased in 1978 by Mr. Denis #Provencher of #Canada. Denis bought the large oil painting titled “Le petit téâtre” at Diego’s studio for $1,490 Canadian Dollars.  But, we have no clue as to where it is now. Please be of help!

In the Gregorian calendarNew Year’s Eve (also known as Old Year’s Day or Saint Sylvester’s Day in many countries), the last day of the year, is on December 31 which is the seventh day of the Christmas season. In many countries, New Year’s Eve is celebrated at evening social gatherings, where many people dance, eat, drink alcoholic beverages, and watch or light fireworks to mark the new year.

Happy New Year!

#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

Group 2 Oct 21 2017

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!
