He has been admired in foreign countries as he received many awards in European countries like Spain, Dutch, France, Turkey, and Italy and the Middle and Near East. His name “NAKAO, Tetsuaki” was engraved at the Louvre in Paris.
He has a great knowledge about philosophy. His theme is to bring message that will be handled down as the history of man through his arts.
