Maestro Knows – Episode 5 (Patrick Martinez)

October 14, 2014   Posted by Levi Maestro

Since meeting Patrick in 2009, I have seen the world come to be influenced by his work through neon. Several companies have ripped off his designs and every day many people post pictures of his work on their tumblr and social media pages without having any idea where it came from. If you google Patrick's name it will give you many results at his ever growing catalogue, but in this episode of Maestro Knows you will come to find out a bit more of what keeps him creating, day in and day out. Take a look as we roll through studio Martinez, noting past and present works. Plus a cruise down Whittier Blvd to identify Patrick's work in full form. Another one from and for the City of Angels!

October 5, 2014   Posted by Levi Maestro

Several years ago one of my friends introduced me to a new artist he was working with named Becky G. At that time, she has several videos online with quite a lot of traction and soon after had caught the attention of hit-maker Dr. Luke. Since signing to his label, I've seen Becky make amazing strides in what is going to be an amazing musical journey. As she tells in the video of her tour dates with Demi Lovato and Katy Perry, her current single "Shower" is marinating around the world and the #BEASTERS are becoming an even stronger alliance. I'm excited to have put this piece together at this exact time, showcasing another awesome Los Angeles story. Hailing from Inglewood, California…let's meet Becky G! LMBG_640_

Maestro Knows – Episode 3 (Los Angeles)

December 9, 2013   Posted by Levi Maestro

The year is coming to a close and I wanted to take things back to the old school. I started my Maestro Knows riding around in my car, visiting friends around the city of Los Angeles to showcase their lives and talents but since then it's taken my documentation around the world. This year I worked on the Wild Rabbit campaign with Hennessy, which hit close to home for me because it's my everyday scenario. It's about chasing after the thing that you love, striving for it, capturing it, improving it and so on. So in this piece I wanted to give you a look at some of my friends (Bridget Kelly, Nem Perez, Valerie Julian, Kyle Awtry) who are chasing after theirs in LA! Read More
