The series of works, "Ginkgo Albus" is re-titles former series of "Genus of 200 million years and Earth". In this work, I paint Ginkgo Biloba on asphalt. Ginkgo Biloba is only surviving and endangered species in Ginkgo genus which is a living fossil and existed more than 200 million years. Whereas asphalt symbolize a present urban form of the ground Earth. In this work, Ginkgo is humanized to some extent, thinking about a way of life, city and earth from the perspective of humanity.
