Born in February 6, 1967 in Klungkung, Bali, his name, Suklu, is an acronym derived from his given name and place of birth Klungkung. ‘Sujana from Klungkung’ became Suklu as now everybody calls him.
He always had a talent for drawing since childhood and went to junior high school to learn Balinese traditional style painting. He continued to study art at STSI Art University in Denpasar, Bali. However, his work belongs firmly to the contemporary rather than traditional art scene. He volunteers in many local community art projects and gets involve in the process, mostly in making installation art. This way he can influence his fellow artists to appreciate contemporary art. This is clearly proven its strong personal motive and his struggle for self-identity, a concepts alien to traditional schools.
