Cracking Art is an art movement known for the creation of urban installations characterized by the presence of giant animals made of recyclable and colored plastic.

The Cracking Art movement was founded by Omar Ronda, Alex Angi, Renzo Nucara, Carlo Rizzetti, Marco Veronese, Vittorio Valente, and Kicco. In 2008, Omar Ronda left the project in order to start a solo career. In 2001, for just one year, he joined the Alessandro Pianca group.

The Cracking Art movement is currently formed by five artists: Alex Angi, Renzo Nucara, Marco Veronese, William Sweetlove and Kicco. They exhibit works and installations in Italy and abroad, consisting mainly of reproductions of animals in recyclable plastic inserted into public spaces such as streets, squares, cities and with various exhibitions in museums and contemporary art fairs.

The name "Cracking Art" comes from the verb "to crack" which indicates the state of being split, broken, crashed.

Moreover, the catalytic cracking is the name that stands for the chemical reaction occurring when the raw crude oil is converted into plastic. This is the reason why for the movement "cracking" represents the moment when something natural becomes artificial, the most important instant that for the artists of the movement should be represented through art.
