Just one of many experiences with artist Antonio Diego Voci; “My parents collected over 15 pieces (mostly original oils) from our time in Germany in early 1980’s. I used to play with Alessandra (daughter of Helga and Diego Voci) same age at the time. We had many trips to Diego and Helga’s house and Diego painted me a horse for my birthday in 1978!”
Today 37 years later, this horse drawing owned by Alissa Snow Skildheim hangs in her office.
This is only ONE of many collectors of Antonio Diego Voci works of art out in the world and many we have yet to receive images of and provenance information (including Skildheim’s.. hint, hint can’t wait to see them all.)
And, just one example of Diego’s characteristic and his obsession with capturing the moment. Where ever, whenever and with whom… Diego would portray their wish with just a few moments and a few brush strokes… and all this is an appetite for more…
Human beings are drawn to emotions in a form of expression that Diego did so well in his portrayal of people on canvas. Diego empathized with people of lesser means and told their stories with his brushes. No holding back, Diego captured the raw human face in his works to share the beauty of all walks of life.
The Silvers Family of Colorado shares their “Girl with Pitcher” with the Diego Voci Team, a painting completed during the Joy (Gibson) Naffouj time period. Joy Naffouj in conversation with Diego one day said “Everyone knows you as Diego… you need to be signing your paintings Diego”. That was the beginning of the Diego Voci Legacy (1965).
