Sakko has the greatest respect for the history and culture of his Middle Eastern background, particularly in the juxtaposition of the old and the new. This combination of ancient and modern pervades both the inspiration and the execution of his radiant abstract painting. Their vibrant golds, ochres and midnight blues recall the dazzling illuminations in ancient manuscripts, while his highly contemporary approach to form and style places these works firmly in the 21st century. 

Although he started life on a more conventional career path, Sakko’s obvious talent led him in a different direction, and he now devotes himself full-time to painting. 

Sakko’s work has been the subject of many successful solo exhibitions all over Europe.
