Born in 1957 in Alor Setar, Amron Omar received his education at Sekolah Rendah Sungai Korok Baru in 1964 before majoring in Art and Design at ITM from 1976 to 1980. He was one of the early graduates in the field, and later worked with an advertising company before becoming a full-time painter. He started off painting portraits, especially among dignitaries. But it was his Pertarungan series that brought him into the limelight. He aimed to lift the roots of Malay culture through his paintings of martial arts.
