#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!

#DIEGO VOCI #Faces- Where are they now? Faded Polaroids found by Helga in a shoebox.

#Helga Voci, #Diego’s widow, has provided the DVP a plethora of Index Cards she kept since the mid 70’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, suggested inventory records of the Diego aficionados such as Stephen Max and his wife Wendy. They represented Diego exclusively in Canada from 1980 until 1985 the year Diego passed.

Learn how Stephen Max and Coop Cooprider were linked to Diego’s growing success in Germany and then Canada – all because of a TV Guide:  https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page15.html#88728

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….

CHURCHILL OR TRUMP? OR BOTH? (and who’s the guy singing?)

The New Yorker December 18 & 25 2017

The movie “Darkest Hour” may have inspired this composite of 2 leaders who succeeded in spite of being unpopular leaders among their own government. But, who’s the guy singing?

Diego Voci had great respect for good caricature artists. (Diego was also one of the best).
