Certified by the artist on the back

Omar Ronda is born in the province of Biella, in Portula, in 1947.

After a first experience as a gallerist in his hometown, experience that allows him to get in touch with important artists of international renown, in 1973 he goes to New York, the city where he decides to spend a whole year. In the Big Apple, the artist meets the major representatives of the art world of the time: the famous gallery owners Leo Castelli and Ileana Sonnabend and the world-renowned artists Rauschenberg, Warhol, Lichtenstein and Basquiat. Thanks to his friendship with Leo Castelli and Gian Enzo Sperone - known earlier in Turin - he begins to stage exhibitions of great international importance because of the importance and influence of the participating artists. Though he was at the height of success, in the early nineties, Ronda decided to put an end to his experience as a gallery owner, to devote himself entirely to artistic design. So, in 1993 he is one of the founders, as well as theorist, of the group of Biella "Cracking Art" with Renzo Nucara, Marco Veronese, Alex Angi and Carlo Rizzetti. From the English verb to crack, the "Cracking art" arises, according to its adherents, as an artistic movement of fracture with the past tradition, setting itself, as an ambitious goal, a radical renewal through the use of a new and explosive language, mirror of the contemporary world. Hence the use of plastic, poor material and utterly ordinary, but that, precisely because of its widespread and common use, we find in everything we use in everyday life.
