Do Greater Things

Jasper Wong

Do Greater Things by Jasper Wong was located at the Art Exchange on 3rd Street. Founder of POW! WOW!, Jasper Wong was approached by Microsoft to paint the inaugural mural in Long Beach in 2015. The mural features many elements including a tiger-headed figure, dinosaur-skull-headed figure, stars, arrows, astronauts, a rocket, and roses on the bottom.  Jasper has said that his “concept centers on young people being inspired to ‘do great things’. In this case, two of my characters are drawn to space and another to nature. I’m also thinking about the tools needed to ‘do great things’. Such tools as paintbrushes, spray cans, binoculars, and telescopes.”
