Stephen and Wendy Max, collectors of DiegoVoci™ works of art and past exclusive agent for #Diego’s works in #Canada.
Stephen shares his personal experience;
“It’s difficult to find the right words to describe the association and friendship
with this great artist (DiegoVoci™) and his immediate family.
Our association which developed and flourished for more than a decade, now seems like a “blink of an eye”.
Our family travelled to Germany in 1971 with The RCAF to serve in Baden- Soellingen. Initially we lived in the city of Rastatt and soon after our arrival relocated to the Married Quarters area in the village of Weitenung. Our three children were educated in the Base Baden school system and life there was exciting with travel as a primary focus during our tour.
Originally we were to serve a three year engagement which by our choice developed into a five year stay in Germany. During that time, Wendy and I became aware of and interested in the art of Diego and his works.”
Our first exposure to DiegoVoci™ came through the TV guide cover story in 1974. It took some time and effort to finally locate the artist and we first viewed Diego’s works shortly after, at a showing in the Officers Club in Heidelberg.
There, we were completely swept away with his works and we made our first purchase “The Face of a Young Woman ”. That was in Nov 1974. “
