The Wrestling Legends Minimalist Series was first launched by Bernie ‘BAM’ Gross. After much demand, the NY artist and designer has expanded the concept from mini posters to a full array of goods to choose from. Not only are there larger 18×24″ screenprints that serve as limited edition versions of his original prints, but tshirts and accessories are now available as well. All items are now available at the BAMitsBernie Etsy Shop.
While wrestling entertainment is still relatively popular, there’s no disputing that the The World’s Wrestling Federation saw its golden era during during the 80’s and 90’s. Most of its success is easily attributed to not only the wrestlers’ ability to entertain the crowd, but the passion they put into creating unique and well-branded characters.
The WWF Legends Minimalist Poster Series became a challenge for designer, Bernie ‘BAM’ Gross, to tap into this theory to its rawest form and create designs that evoke the trademark aesthetics and personality that made each wrestler so unique from one another. Each poster features simple visual elements that are iconic to each respective wrestler, as well as their signature finishing move.
