The younger Inukai studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, and The National Academy of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Inukai exhibited his first one-man show at the California Arts Club in 1934, followed by subsequent works exhibited at museums in the United States and in Japan. He was multi-talented artist, actively working as a painter, sculptor, and printmaker. His works are found in the collections of the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, the Portland Museum of Fine Art in Oregon, Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts, and the Wichita University Museum of Fine Art in Kansas.
