"The piece portrays Gabriel the Archangel as a pilot giving a light to Cortez the Conquistador. In a world where God is nowhere to be found, his messenger Gabriel has nothing to do; the lighting of a cigarette for a man such as Cortez highlights the fall from grace and uselessness of a divine entity. This was one of the very first paintcans that I painted all the way around, creating a narrative that evolves as the viewer rotates the piece. The spray coating at the final stage of producing the piece left a milky haze, which lent itself to the title of the work. I have been painting on paintcans for a long time, so I just picked this one up and started drawing. I had no preconceived idea here, I just put charcoal to can and forms appeared. What began as a standard portrayal of an ace pilot/angel soon evolved as I kept going round the can. The drawing was done in a minute or two, it came out of nowhere. That's when you know something good is cooking, when images appear as though they had been waiting to emerge from the hidden corners of the mind. Sometimes it's as though I'm guided by invisible hands, and this piece is one result of that experience" - 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.
