“Myu will be 34 on Friday and it’s just too sad to think that could be his last birthday,” said Karunatilake in an Amnesty International press release. “It’s clear painting has been a vital comfort for him on death row.”

The haunting paintings depict various aspects of Sukumaran’s time on death row. One shows a single bullet standing upright on a table edge, while another is a self-portrait, with Sukumaran’s face melting into an unrecogisable blur of colours.
