Artist Diego Voci was a Man of the People

Helga Voci, Diego’s lover, wife and confidant from 1960 until his death from lung cancer (chain smoker), wrote in her biography, her memory;

“Diego played cards with the Fishermen”

Memories of Menorca (1976) on Diego’s Birthday

Birthdays came and went in Diego’s world however one year Helga planned a special surprise.  Helga invited her parents, Christine Khan and her children, Alessandra was 2 years old at the time, and they all flew to an island off the south of Spain, Menorca.

They rented an apartment and to celebrate Diego’s birthday.  Friends and family gathered around the garden to celebrate Diego with lobsters and fun festivities.  Diego loved camaraderie and even played cards with the fisherman.

While there on Menorca, Diego captured ideas in his mind and here are two examples of sketches (one of 2 year old daughter Alessandra in the yard) were inspired by his birthday celebration.

CAVALIERE BY MASTER ARTIST DIEGOVOCI™

Cavaliere 27.5 x 23.5in  Acrylic on canvas

This unique work of art by Diego titled “Cavaliere” has more than just the stature of a knight; “Cavaliere” has the essence of strength that Diego often portrayed in his paintings whether it be fisherman, laborers, and female nudes.  The majority of Diego’s paintings harnessed a feeling of strength no matter what life looks like.  Diego understood how horses connect with humans and painted horses of all genres… from realism to abstraction.

“Cavaliere”, 1972, was purchased by Walt Lawrence at Diego’s home / studio in Schwetzingen, West Germany.  This painting has been in the Walt Lawrence’s art collection all this time (over 42 years).  This is one of 11 Diego’s Walt Lawrence has in his collection.    Walt recalls Diego as a genuine man who truly liked to invite people into his studio to see the process of his work whether the painting was finished or not.

The Diego Voci Project is amazed that some wonderful Diego oil paintings are still being discovered for as little as a $1000 and sometimes less.  It’s a “Buyers” Market for Diego and it’s time to consider Diego paintings as an investment.

You will find Diego Voci on YouTube and Google
