CURATE YOUR CURIOSITY An Artistic Wonderland awaits all visitors to The Diego Voci Project where we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Diego’s birth (August 10th). This year marks the 100th year since the Master’s birth in Gasperina Italy. This summer set your sights on a Diego experience. From Masterpieces in oil to Tempera and Watercolour, there’s plenty of faces to discover. In recognition of this once in a lifetime occurrence we are creating a book titled Diego The Artist of a Thousand Faces. Enjoy the celebration and this new video from Stephen Max
Margaret Carrow shares memories of her Aunt’s memories of how she collected her two internationally collected artist Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) paintings.
My Aunt lived most of her life in Europe working for the Air Force as an administrator of the Air Force schools, in Germany, France and Spain. She is 93 (in 2012) years old and I have moved her back to the states,along with her personal possessions including two of her paintings.She talked about the artist she knew while she was in Germany. The two oil paintings by Diego are signed on the front and the back. I have taken pictures of them and have included them with this letter. One of the paintings needs some repairs, and I didn’t know how I should have this done. My Aunt is living in a retirement home, and wanted her paintings to be with her. She told me that Diego was working on a painting for President Kennedy when she first met Diego.”
Not Diego, the Game. Not artists, Diego Riviera or Diego Velázquez. This is about Diego Voci!
Joy Naffouj, a Canadian Art Dealer met internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985, VOH-chee) in 1966 in Germany. She was attracted to his strong painting style; very different from her stable of the other artists she represented. He had been signing his great body of work with some form of “Voci”. But everyone knew him as “Diego”. Joy convinced him to sign his paintings thereafter with the “Diego” signature.
Coop Cooprider spotted “Diego’s” work at an exhibition at her studio in Ramstein, Germany. Diego also displayed at the Restaurant La Gondola,Gigi, the owner, pictured with Diego and a Stars & Stripes reporter.
