My painting Rock Beats Paper portrays a different outlook on a familiar game of chance, Rock-Paper-Scissors. During my childhood and still today, I disagree with the rule "paper covers rock" because as a mason's son, I always believed rock to be the strongest element. Therefore, this is my perception of rock banding together to beat the odds and liberate themselves from the rules of the game.

Born in Scranton Pennsylvania and raised by spiritual and supportive parents, Omar drew on positive life experiences to shape his work.  The truth and honesty he strives to achieve in his work has captured the attention of many art lovers.  Many awards and accolades reinforce his success within prestigious national competitions like the Art Renewal Center's Scholarship Competition, International Salon, and the F&W publication, Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing.  Omar exhibits regularly on a national scale and has already participated in several key showcases.  As Mr. Rodriguez continues to pursue his personal aesthetic goals, he looks forward to contributing to the efforts of the Ani Art Academies project.
