Komai learned copperplate engraving from Nishida Takeo and got a prize of Shunyo-Kai. In the next year, he got a prize at the first São Paulo Art Biennial.
Komai was highly appreciated even in the oversea with Munakata Shiko, and it enabled him to make a spectacular debut in the Japanese art field after WWⅡ.
His artwork had an impact on a lot of Japanese print artists, as a pioneer of the copperplate field.
