"From the high plains of Kazakhstan comes a brightly colored party member with a fistful of hair grease and a wink of the eye.
Each piece started on glass as a monotype, but using a technique I developed, were then transferred to canvas. Some are on linen, some on canvas, and some are on what I like to call Zakrinite. It's a compound of space age polymers and fibrous material.
After a good deal of trial and error, I got to a point with my paint and peel technique where I could use colors and layers while maintaining a nice flat surface. These are the fruits of my labor, maybe from one branch, you could say." - Ron Zakrin
This piece of original artwork is signed by Ron Zakrin and comes with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.
"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.
