Sakkal was a gallery artist with Komei Wachi’s Gallery K in Washington D.C. Prior to his untimely death, Wachi believed Sakkal had made significant advances in the use of paper as a fine art medium. In support of this contention, he exhibited Sakkal’s work along side the collages of Robert Rauschenberg. Wachi believed it was not a question of whether Sakkal would achieve national recognition for his contribution to the medium, but when.
Sakkal is a Faculty Instructor at Howard Community College in Columbia, MD. His work can be seen through Zenith Gallery and the Light Street Gallery in Baltimore, MD.
