Omarion: Happy B-Day, Kiddo, Your Face Is Worth Thousands

Exclusive Details

Omarion passed on the Legos and Tonka truck for his son's 2nd birthday ... opting for an art piece that set the singer back $18k.

The R&B star hired artist Madsteez to do a surreal painting of his 2-year-old son, Megaa ... a gift he presented at his kid's Kidchella-themed b-day party over the weekend in Granada Hills.

We're told Omarion reached out to Madsteez four days ago to make the 36" x 36" acrylic and spray paint piece -- which took 2 days to create.

As for the party ... the kids performed on a mini-stage and played in a bunch of bounce houses. There was also plenty of face painting.

Not too shabby.
