#DIEGO VOCI HAS INLUENCED OTHER #ARTISTS

One of these artists is Christa Volkert-Vogel in Germany who met Diego several times on Diego’s travels to the #Schwarzwald (Black Forest) area, in this case #Offenburg. She not only loved Diego’s master artistry, Christa says “he greatly affected my art.” Christa purchased 5 DIEGO artworks, “La Lettura per il Teatro” (Reading for the Theatre), which she acquired on October 26, 1980, is shown here:

#DIEGO VOCI “La Lettura per il Teatro” (80x70cm, Oil on Canvas, 9802-100)

Christa remembers, “In my youth I had courses at the “Painters Vocational School” in Lahr, with several regional artists including Diego Voci, an internationally known artist and compelling contemporary painter. Thus a sound foundation was created that would help me in my future endeavors. After many years of  making it my hobby, I studied art in 1998 at the Academy of Fine Arts in LahrYears later I also taught there.”

(“In meiner Jugendzeit hatte ich an der Malerfachschule in Lahr, bei mehreren regionalen Malern sowie bei Diego Voci, einem überregional bekannten Künstler und überzeugenden Maler der Gegenwart, Kurse belegt. So wurde eine fundierte Grundlage geschaffen, die mir später zu einem Kunststudium verhelfen würde.”)

Christa also recalls one day that Diego was drawing several flower-themed artworks and says her own renderings were highly influenced from that one day forward!

FOUND: #NATIVE-AMERICAN “INDIANER” by DIEGO VOCI FOR $6.99

INDIANER Zweigle 28 JAN 2018 KC Source GMAIL

Diego Voci: “Indianer” 17″x14″, Pastel and Tempera on Paper.

Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, recently acquired the above  “Indianer” from a couple in Texas for $300 including shipping. Brenda and Ralph Zweigle of lotathings.com came across this Diego #discovery in a #Goodwill store for $6.99! Not the first time the DVP has heard such stories! Do you recall the 97 cent buy? https://www.artifactcollectors.com/hot-buys-diego-voci-paintings-562.html
Coop bought the “Indianer” as a gift for Abel Sillas, one of Coop and Patti’s son-in-laws. Abel is from a “pueblo” north of Albuquerque and is a proud part Navajo Native American. Why is this significant? In 1973, Diego and his wife Helga on their 1st trip to the US included a Southwest destination. While there they traveled to several pueblos including Taos and Santa Fe. Diego rendered many a #Native-American from memory.
Abel Sillas married to Gabrielle, one of 6 daughters to Coop and Patti, helped raise two very talented, smart and very attractive children: Shane, 25, and Aliah, 21. Coop and Patti simply want to honor Abel for his role as a successful part in building their self-esteem, motivation and to make them feel loved. Shown here is the essence of good parenting! And, “Indianer” is an early b-day gift to Abel who only gets to celebrate every 4 years….

Who could predict that fate would place 19 year old Helga #Drössler, sitting in the Paris #artist #café Les Deux Magotswith a friend,  only to find the famous #sculptor Gigi #Guadagnucci who was also an acquaintance of her’s,  suddenly introduce her to the debonair artist #DiegoVoci ? Both their lives would change until Diego’s death in 1985.

HAPPY #KWANZAA 2017 – TO ALL RELIGIONS

Today, is the first day of KWANZAA, a week-long holiday honoring African culture and traditions.

Kwanzaa is celebrated in the United States, as well as other countries with populations of African descendants. It is a holiday which celebrates and honors #African culture in not only the #African-American community but also in the World African community.

This cultural festival from the 26th of December to the 1st of January that climaxes in feasts and gift giving, was initially established to unite African-Americans with their African roots and heritage.  Kwanzaa is celebrated by lighting a candle daily, beginning today, 26 December 2017, through January 1, 2018 when it ends. #Happy Kwanzaa all!
