Group 5 1 NOV 2017

#DIEGO VOCI #Faces- Where are they now? Faded Polaroids found by Helga in a shoebox.

#Helga Voci, #Diego’s widow, has provided the DVP a plethora of Index Cards she kept since the mid 70’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, suggested inventory records of the Diego aficionados such as Stephen Max and his wife Wendy. They represented Diego exclusively in Canada from 1980 until 1985 the year Diego passed.

Learn how Stephen Max and Coop Cooprider were linked to Diego’s growing success in Germany and then Canada – all because of a TV Guide:  https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page15.html#88728

#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.”

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!

#DIEGO VOCI “FACES SERIES” PART ONE

Welcome to Part 1of 5 in the “FACES SERIES” by internationally collected #artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) also known as “The Artist of a Thousand Faces”. Diego was fascinated by the beauty and mystery of faces like the etched lines of life’s hardships in an old man’s face. Although we are only featuring Diego faces in this series, he was by no means limited to this category. Diego also loved figures such as the grace and power of a horse, the female body nude or in ballet, landscapes, still life, and many more genres which can be viewed in “The Beauty of Diego” book (Link below).

Group 1 Oct 21 2017

Depicted above are 6 of the “Faces” #masterpieces by Diego. Compiled thanks to Helga Voci, Diego’s widow, who began taking polaroids in the mid 70’s and indexed them to create an inventory of sorts. Some #polaroids are severely faded and definitely not as vibrant as Diego’s originals would have been.

There are several hundred index cards with images of Diego’s art that Helga found in the basement a few months ago dated as sold in 1975-77. The box unfortunately represents only a mere number of the Diego #artworks. Nonetheless it supports the fact that there are a couple thousand more in the world to be found. Indexing the artworks was suggested by Diego Voci Historian, Coop #Cooprider early on, but unfortunately it does not include hundreds of paintings Diego created prior to the mid 70’s.

Help us find the owners of these masterpiece faces!
