Omar Small

Artist bio

I am a young Christian artist and professional. I love to find new ways to express my love for God through my art.


The Sword is the Word



Artist Statement

My artwork shows me capturing the beauty of looking ahead toward new horizons and unchartered waters while holding on to the bible/ the word of God/Sword of the Spirit. The color blue was chosen for the model's jacket because it biblically represents the heavens and the word of God (Exodus 24:10) and the red dress represents the blood of Christ which was shed and covers our sins (Colossians 1:20).

How it fits into contest

My artwork focuses on the importance of the Word of God and specifically reflects the latter part of Ephesians 6:17 which states, "and grasp the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).


I credit my wife Roshelle Sparman-Small for modelling in the picture. Her devotion to worship and desire to serve God in part inspired the submission by reminding me, that as a believer our actions and outlook towards life should be led by the word of God.
