Omran was born on December 2, 1981 in Al Madinah Al Munawarah, Saudi Arabia. He is originally Syrian from Aleppo which is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. He grew up and lived in Jeddah all of his life. In 2007, Omran studied in Egypt and attained a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Arts, specializing in Advertising.
During his childhood, he used to observe everything around him like a thirsty sponge, taking a deep look, particularly at beautiful things. He was always sitting by his father’s side, trying to show this beauty by drawing pictures of what he observed.
After he graduated from college, he worked at an advertising agency in Saudi Arabia as a web graphic designer. Next he got a new position as an interactive art director at the DraftFCB in Jeddah.
Art was Omran’s biggest dream: a dream that he had every single night, a dream he pursued in his waking hours. Every day he developed his skills and through hard work and diligence crafted his creativity. The dream was his ambition, with the beauty of the world as his motivation. As a result, he has achieved some of his dreams, and accomplished many of his goals. Looking at his achievements fills him with the energy and push to achieve more. Every minute and every hour, he challenges himself to excel in his area of expertise and to make his dream become a reality.
Finally, he gives credit to his supportive family and to the beauty of the world.
