Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) is an Italian figurative artist. Although constantly drawing or painting from childhood to the day he succumbed to lung cancer, Diego's most productive period was the last quarter century of his life, which began when he met Helga Drössler in January 1960 in Paris. A significant turning point in Diego's career, Diego said, "My life took on new meaning. I became more." Helga, who became Diego's wife, lover, best friend and confident, published seven chapters of her life with Diego on Artifact Collectors.Within those 25 abundant years Diego created 4000 oils mostly on canvas and many thousands of drawings.

Diego's death was followed by a twenty-five year vacuum of information. An Internet search made by a seeker of anything about Diego Voci would come up empty. Now, after a quarter century  the collaborative internet search for the undiscovered works by Diego Voci is gradually yielding collectors in various countries.

Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, and Fauvism all experienced the hand of Diego Voci who was fascinated by the beauty and mystery of the face and figure, whether the female body nude or in ballet, or the etched lines of life's hardships in an old man's face, or the grace and power of the horse. Diego's versatility was his strength. Diego not only saw and realized human frailty, the desire and longing of the human to be something more, seeking but not to find; but also he understood man's animal instinct to overpower, offset by the object's instinct to resist.
