Nakanishi says “I have reached this method while trying to depict what I want to without protest to my mind." He paints in a careful manner with the style called “araidashi" that is to wash out colors on a paper with water numerous times. It gives the comfort of fresh air and gentleness to viewers.
Nakanishi works will take you to the nostalgic parts of your memories even if you see them for the first time.
