Helga Voci, Diego’s #widow thought the date of painting to be “time of #Naffouj Galerie or before”. Actually it was not. There were no paintings signed “Diego™” until Dr. Jawdat Naffouj and Joy Naffouj made a #contract, that’s when the “Diego” signature began. This artwork was after Naffouj probably sold by Galerie Dahms. Our records at the DiegoVoci™ Archive notes Diego experimented with everything; cooked #glass paint, #sand based canvas and yes, #roller brush. The Diego™ gouache was done circa 1973, a time when he experimented with a small roller brush, typical for painting walls.
“Three Children” is another roller brush example, signed Diego, Schwetzingen* 1973.
(*Their home/studio near Mannheim and Heidelberg).
The intimacy of purchasing a piece of fine art many times stems from the connection point with the artist. As the Diego Voci Project team archives works of art by Diego Voci, the majority of the collectors have personally met Diego Voci, himself. Diego Voci, an extrovert by nature loved connecting with people and people were charmed by Diego’s sincere ability to connect.
An example here with Bob Watson, a Diego collector, who found the Diego Voci Project on Google and reached out to share:
“I lived in Wiesbaden from 1979-1986 and purchased this pastel entitled “Jockey’s” from an artist named Diego. I did meet him”.
You can see the reflection on the image itself from the camera flash because “Jockey’s” was framed behind glass.
As more and more Diego Collectors and their artworks are discovered, many are finding the volunteer team on diegovociproject.com thru google. And over many years the team has attempted efforts all over social media and art / collectible websites to help spread the name Diego Voci… so that one day.. The legacy of Diego Voci will be spread throughout the world and all of his works would be cataloged and Diego’s masterpieces exhibited around the world.
