When a new potential art collector made the first purchase, often it would be a clown by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee).

Then the new collector experienced the “Potato Chip Phenomenon”, being unable to stop buying just one Diego Voci painting.  They become attracted by a unique magnetism in Diego’s masterly creations totally unconfined by just one genre.

NOTE: Google has assembled its own image collection of Diego Voci artworks.  It’s awesome!  Google “Diego Voci” and click “Images” or click here: https://www.google.com/search?q=Diego+Voci&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwix1pPQgO_YAhVP92MKHWldBbMQ_AUICigB&biw=1680&bih=944

The Diego Voci Project has been on worldwide search since 2009.  We have only found about 25% of Diego’s works so far.  The image of “Les Deux Clowns” above was taken on October 17, 1976 when purchased in Worms, Germany by proud owner JIM HOLT who contacted the Diego Voci Project to be cataloged in the Diego Voci Archive.

C.V. Madonna & Child

Madonna and Child” (1957 signed “D.Voci“) Oil on Board by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985)

1957 was a very full year, just like very other year was during Diego’s lifetime (1920-1985). Diego Voci invited his nephew Tony Voci to travel Europe with him while Tony was stationed in the Armed Services. Here is an excerpt of a great memory:

Tony Voci recalls driving with his artist Uncle and about every hour they would stop at a café for a smoke and espresso. To the surprise of Tony, Diego was greeted as “Diego” everywhere. “Diego” was his own #celebrity. Diego loved people!
