"I sometimes see a lone drinker at the bar, the one who finds solace in a dark corner and a bottle of spirits. Some unknown shitstorm has led them there to gather themselves or to simply forget, but there is a visible conflict written on their face, and this is what I am looking to capture, the tormented souls seeking comfort in dark places.

The lines on this guys face tell a tale of hardship and loneliness. And who is more alone than the traveling musician? Away from friends and family, wrangling over pay with the shrewd club owner, spending countless hours on the road? Complementary colors compete for your attention like the bluesman's song against the din of a bar full of loud and unruly patrons." - Ron Zakrin

This piece of original artwork comes signed by Ron Zakrin and includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.

ABOUT Ron Zakrin:
"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.
