"I was initially going to have the girl playing a synthesizer, but it became clear that an arcade machine from my youth would be a perfect fit. Well, I was working on the piece, like I said, she was originally playing a Moog Voyager synthesizer. But sometimes I get tired of painting all of those knobs and tedious details that make a synth so goddam sweet. Fun to play a synth, hell to paint. The arcade cabinet solved this problem, without altering the dynamic I was going for. I put the cigarette in the girls mouth as a nod to all of my arcade heroes from back in the 80's, most of whom were 9th degree burnouts who swore at the machine and would smoke while chasing that high score so that they could write something dirty on the top board." - Ron Zakrin

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.

The Hero Emerges On The Eve Of The Apocalypse
Ron Zakrin Returns On The Eve Of The Apocalpyse

Ron Zakrin was actually one of the first 10 artists to be featured here on the wild world of 1xRun.com, his first Run was in fact #10, a 15.75 x 20 gicl?e "The Creeps", and was only an edition of 28. For his next RUN, Ron returned with a series of hand-painted mixed media paint cans cthat provide a swirling narrative as the viewer turns them. Each one is meticulously crafted and a true one of a kind, just the way we like it here on 1xRun.com! Next Ron brought us a series of original paintings and accompanying limited edition prints for his Still Life With Drum Machine series. For his latest piece Ron continues with the energy from Still Life Drum machine but the focus has shifted to video games as he returns with The Hero Returns On The Eve Of The Apocalypse...
