About this Art
On May 24th, Inner State Gallery will open it’s doors for Detroit artist Ron Zakrin, as he showcases his latest body of work “Beauty & The Beats”. This entirely new collection of work is inspired by electronic music in celebration of this year’s Movement Festival!

View Original Artwork from Beauty & The Beats here.

“Beauty & The Beats refers to my pursuit of an aesthetic that embraces a sinister beauty, and the music that inspires my work. Repetition plays a visual role, alluding to rhythms heard, digested, and transcribed onto a two dimensional plane. In this exhibition of new work, some references are overt, some covert, and others are totally subliminal. There is enough ugly in this world to choke the heart out of everyday existence, I respond by painting what pleases me visually and sonically.” - Ron Zakrin

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Ron Zakrin and 1xRUN.

Ron Zakrin
Detroit, MI
"I was born at Hutzel Hospital in Detroit. As a kid I wanted to become either an artist, an astronaut, or a master of Kung Fu, roaming the world and using my swift fury to thwart the rising tide of evil. I became an artist as a young man and never looked back." - Ron Zakrin

Ron Zakrin has been an ever present creative force in Detroit since the mid nineties, when he emerged on to the underground electronic music set with paintings that provided a visual counterpart to the Detroit sound that was taking the world by storm. Since those early days Ron's work has expanded in scope and scale; no longer strictly focused on man and his relationship with technology, Zakrin probes the veins of society, and explores the nature of man, love, and loss. Zakrin lives in Detroit Michigan, where he was born and works daily.

In parallel to his visual art, Zakrin is also a recording artist under the name Goudron. First appearing on the on the legendary Detroit label Ersatz Audio in 2002 with the EP "Horses and Chariots", and an EP and LP in 2004, "Civil Symmetry" and "Raw Voltage", Zakrin moved to the equally influential Interdimensional Transmissions label after the Ersatz label closed shop. 2007 marked the beginning of this new partnership with the release of the EP "Stiletto", with more projects in the pipeline.

Zakrin puts his modified circuitry to work along with vintage analog synthesizers to produce a musical journey through the post apocalypse, gliding seamlessly from electropunk anthems at home both on the dancefloor and behind the wheel, to a more introspective and melodic reflection of life, love, and loss.

Having toured throughout North America and performing for enthusiastic crowds on both sides of the border, Goudron has a respectable following in the electronic music audience both in North America and Europe.
