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.

Helga Voci recalls, “The buyer may have been a German Doctor.” No name is on the index card. Siegfred Dahms owner of Galerie Dahms said this about Diego;
“DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people. They understand, they get excited about and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art. The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immerse that people gradually acquire more and more of his work. DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”
