Page 2 Content of 1974 Diego Catalog by Coop Cooprider, DiegoVoci™Historian begins with this quote by DiegoVoci™ interviewed by journalist Victoria Williams in Germany:

A man does not find interest to be artist… it
comes automatically.

You don’t ask yourself what day you have the idea…
it grows from yourself.

#DiegoVoci™ painting “The Red Hand“, 1974, 100 x 80 cm, oil on canvas

Victoria Williams, free-lancing at the time, wrote the following biographical sketch:

“Antonio DiegoVoci™ was born August 10, 1920, in Gasperina, a little #village in south #Italy. Typical of most parents, Guiseppe Antonio and Messina Angela encouraged their son to study for a traditional #profession. His father said,  

‘The God of Art does not give bread Diego’

…but this was not important. The compulsion for #art was too strong – the pleasure too rewarding. DIEGO was born to paint. DIEGO sold his first painting at 18. Since then art has been his profession, his life; his complete livelihood.

“I paint for pleasure… I like to work.” – Diego

At 19, DIEGO began his studies the #ACADEMY #SANMARCO in #Florence where he was tutored during a 3 year period in the #arts of #painting and #sculpture.

DIEGO began traveling the world at 25, living the life of a true #Bohemian artist, painting for his room and food. DIEGO continued #studying, #painting and #meeting with other popular artists of the #century.”  

The real academy is the Café… where you meet so many artists.” – Diego Voci™
