FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rob Schamberger, Painter of Champions, to Paint Live at WWE SummerSlam
KANSAS CITY, Mo., August 7, 2014 – Renowned wrestling artist and painter of champions, Rob Schamberger, is headed to Los Angeles to participate in the festivities leading up to SummerSlam, WWE’s biggest summer event.
Starting on August 15, Schamberger will paint live outside of the panel discussions to be held at Nokia Theatre LA Live. His subject of choice? None other than the legendary “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, one of several featured panelists.
Wrestling fans are encouraged to stop by the theater from August 15-17 to see Schamberger in action, absolutely free of charge. Several of Schamberger’s prints, including a limited edition SummerSlam 2014 print, will be on sale at various merchandise areas inside the theater.
For Schamberger, the chance to work at SummerSlam represents an opportunity for continued partnership with the WWE, not to mention a chance to paint in one of the world’s most celebrated cities.
“It’s an absolute pleasure to be doing live art in Los Angeles for the SummerSlam Confidential Panels,” Schamberger says. “LA is known as one of the art capitals of the world, and WWE is known for some of the best fans in the world. I’m doubly excited to paint my “Stone Cold” Steve Austin portrait in front of both.”
If that combination wasn’t enough to make any artist anxious, the event stakes recently got even higher when the Texas Rattlesnake himself jokingly tweeted a threat:
“And if you screw this thing up, you’re gonna get your ass a Stone Cold Stunner.”
As Schamberger says in his weekly video series, “Not bad!”
