Rob Schamberger at C2E2 2019

Rob Schamberger has been creating art for more than two decades. He is currently the Artist in Residence at the WWE, where he creates stunning artwork.
I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Rob a few years back. That interview can be found at On the Beat With Rob Schamberger.
Rob's journey into wrestling started with his stepfather. Once Rob watched wrestling, he got it and saw the great compatibility with art. I have always said the larger-than-life, colorful wrestling characters seem perfect for art.
Rob's first wrestling painting was of Harley Race, but he has done hundreds more since then. One of his latest is of Becky Lynch as seen below. 
As you can see from the Lynch painting, Rob's paintings are bright, bold and colorful, just like the wrestlers. I'd love to see what Rob could do with the Johngy character, but that is a bit out of my price range and probably not even possible due to other demands on Rob's time.
Rob is a great guy, too. He is willing to discuss painting, art, wrestling and pretty much anything with his fans. I'd like to see his paintings as 8x10 photos to get signed, but that is up to the WWE.
Check out Rob and his creations at Also, follow Rob at the Art of Rob Schambereger on Facebook for more frequent updates and peaks at his work.
