“Diego” was the nickname in the artist’s adult life. He shunned his middle name “Innocenzo”. His family called him “Toto” as a child he signed his works VOCI through 1965. Thereafter “Diego”.

Diego lived up to the title of his 3-page biography “This Artist Is A Lion” that appeared in the May 1974 TV Guide. “His course mane of black hair jutting out drastically behind him, DIEGO is the image of his zodiac symbol – the lion.” https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818.html#43393

Diego’s voices came thru his art and over the years became the “Artist of a Thousand Faces” and “Master of the Surreal”. To view the book, “Beauty of Diego” http://www.blurb.com/books/5419805-the-beauty-of-diego

“MY NEW ABODE” (Helga Voci)

Helga wrote:
Hallo again, I send you a few pictures of my new little house with the walls full of Diego’s paintings…”

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, sent snapshots of her new Abode(a downsized dwelling) which is located behind their original Taunusstein home / studio they purchased in 1976.

“Helga lived with Diego’s ghost speaking to her from the canvases covering the walls of their German home where Diego had his studio. Diego paintings would stay on those walls and remain in a kind of time capsule.” Written by Chris Voci, grand-nephew of Diego Voci

Helga Voci kept possession of her treasured Diego hand painted “Kabinett shown below.
