Meet The Entertainers
Manuel Jiménez, a long time South City resident is founder of Drunk Monkey Art Productions, and Lizzie Luna heads up Luna Tech Art Design, along with Mario Guitran, aka Fats the Elder, and up and coming artist Alyssa Koszis, together will be featured in a show called “Industrial Art”, a combination of art pieces and performing art live. Drunk Monkey Art Productions is an open door art and entertainment media collaboration featuring orignal art, writing, video and music
Raised and attended school in South San Francisco, including Parkway Heights Middle School and El Camino High School. My background is primarily in 2D illustration and over the past three year I have transitioned into painting, sculpting and photography. I am mostly self taught through observing other artists work and experimenting with various mediums.
Recently I started my own art production company (Drunk Monkey Art Productions) focusing on mixed media art ranging from traditional art to art expressed through performance, video and writing. Some of my current projects include experimenting with combining sculpture with paint on canvas, an original graphic novel titled “Undead World” and creating clothing and apparel inspired by my art & original characters.

Alyssa Korzis is an up and coming artist in her own right and looks forward to this opportunity to showcase some of her work. Alyssa has been a student at Skyline College in San Bruno and has contributed to the Biology Department during her studies.
Native to South San Francisco, Lizzie Luna was born in 1982. The ‘80s was a decadent era that had a huge influence on Lizzie, with its mix of Lisa Frank, Nintendo, and Disney all exploding with color and creativity. Having won several local art contests in middle school, this atmosphere sparked a continued interest in investing in her artistic growth. While in high school, Lizzie presented at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, which was the first of many shows to come.
Lizzie Luna attended Skyline College in 2000, where biology, life drawing, and Photoshop classes played an important role in her future. While at Skyline, she participated in the San Francisco Naturalist Society, and donated a few of her paintings to raise money for the American Cetacean Society. Wanting to pursue a more modern career, Lizzie Luna transferred to The Art Institute of California – San Francisco in 2003 to improve her proficiency in digital artwork. At AICASF, Luna became the president of the Paint Club and took the lead on organizing her fifth showing.
After graduating from AICASF in 2007 with a Bachelor’s degree in Media Arts and Animation, Luna began working as a digital and 3D artist. In 2011, Luna made a career change to work under another artist as a muralist, and found a new passion for painting once again. Luna was part of Project Yellow Balloon, donating a few of her painting to a silent auction for Child Life Department at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland in 2015. Currently working on commissioned work and her own projects, Lizzie Luna hopes to continue working on a side personal project titled ‘Boris the Bunny’, an old stuffed rabbit influenced by Tim Burton, to help abused children cope with the trials of their childhoods.
