Rob Schamberger is a very talented artist from Kansas City, painting the superstars and divas of WWE.
His latest WWE related “Canvas 2 Canvas” offering features those honored during the recent National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum awards event in Waterloo, Iowa.
Regarding the Beth Phoenix painting:
Acrylic and spray on 24x 24 wood
Schamberger said: “I did this to celebrate Beth receiving the 2015 Frank Gotch Award from the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum. An incredibly delightful woman to talk with who fully embraces motherhood.”
Regarding the Dan Gable Mural:
12x8 on canvas
The painting features Kurt Angle, Danny Hodge, Lou Thesz, Dan Gable, Cael Sanderson, John Smith, Jordan Burroughs, and Adeline Gray.
Schamberger said: “My largest painting to date! I'm so honored to have this placed so prominently in the museum.”
Regarding the Kurt Angle painting:
Acrylic on 24x24 wood
Schamberger said: “I did this to aid in the honors Kurt received at the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum this past week. It was fascinating to watch Kurt receive a ring celebrating his Olympic gold medal win personally handed over by Dan Gable. Kurt had surgery removing a tumor just days earlier but still made the appearance, showing how important this event and the museum is to both him and the sport of wrestling.”
Regarding the Brian Blair painting:
Acrylic on 24x24 wood
Schamberger said: “I did this to celebrate Brian's induction into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum's Class of 2015 with the Lou Thesz Award. Beyond his in-ring career, Brian has dedicated his life to public service and now serves as the president of the Cauliflower Alley Club, giving back to all of the pro wrestlers who came before him and since. I'm humbled that during his induction speech Brian mentioned the painting of Curt Hennig that I gave to Larry and Irene Hennig at the last CAC Reunion, saying it epitomized the spirit of celebrating wrestling. A class act, 100 percent, and totally deserving of both the recognition he received and of the life he has built.”
