“It's a portrait of an unknown soldier, Viet Nam War era. This was done with acrylic paint, and the Douglas logo was taken from a vintage 1960's magazine. From before the aeronautics company became McDonald Douglas. The ""P"" is leftover from the paintcan logo, it's a Pittsburg paint logo I was intrigued by the colorful "P" logo, and was considering using it as an eye of a cyclops, but decided against it because cyclops are not to be trusted and should be avoided at all cost. I kept the "P" as a colorful counterpart to the hell unleashed on the reverse side in the form of a bomber dropping napalm on an unseen world below. Operation Rolling Thunder decimated the villages and forests in Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam, and death was just around the corner for the enemy and our soldiers alike.” – 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.
