Artist's Description

Lucha libre (Spanish: free wrestling or free fighting) is a term used in Mexico, and other Spanish-speaking countries, for a form of professional wrestling involving various mock combat techniques.

Mexican wrestling is characterized by rapid sequences of holds and moves, as well as “high-flying moves”, some of which have been adopted in the United States, and colorful masks. Lucha libre has also transcended the language barrier to some extent as evidenced by works such as Los Luchadores, ¡Mucha Lucha!, and Nacho Libre. Lucha libre performers are known as luchadores (singular luchador) (“fighter(s)”).
