“I am always learning, always painting, to fill a need… to express.” Diego’s exact words. We want and need more quotes!
First, thanks to Mara, Lars and Stephen for your comments that inspired by the life and art of our hero, Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).
Lars, we are so grateful you found Artifact Collector’s (see link http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page17.html#115141 ) and shared your story with the history your parents have in collecting Diego Voci’s works of art.
ACTION FOR HELP:
Lars, and everyone who knew Diego, we would like to know much more about your personal experiences with Diego every detail to include in the Diego Voci Archive™. One thing we treasure is the exact words as Diego would express his thoughts from the mundane to the worldly view of the great philosophers; everything in his broken Italian accented English. We are gathering such quotes to publish on Wikiquotes.
What would Diego say when he was smoking a cigarette? (2 packs a day, unfiltered)
Would Diego say anything after a first sip of wine?
What would Diego say when he was frustrated with a painting? What would he do? Would he stop and say something or did he gesture a frustration?
What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when a potential collector came thru the door?
What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when Diego put down his paint brush and knew a painting was done?
What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when he sold a painting?
What would Diego say over and over and over again to Alessandra?
Helga, what slipped thru Diego’s voice to keep you calm, “quote” in his words?
