Myuran Sukumaran was an Australian man who was convicted in Indonesia of drug trafficking as a member of the Bali Nine. After a criminal trial, Sukumaran was sentenced on 14 February 2006 by the Denpasar District Court to execution by firing squad. During his time in Kerobokan prison, Sukumaran not only became an accomplished artist but transformed his life and addressed his demons. Sukumaran was determined to make his family proud. After an outpour of condemnation from human rights institutions and the Australian Government, Sukumaran’s plea for clemency was rejected by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo on 30 December 2014. Sukumaran was executed on 29 April 2015 and as a result, a film and exhibition of his works were created.
