The San Francisco Arts Commission's second Art on Market Street poster series for 2022 highlights a Black nonbinary artist.The installation, titled "The Tale of Daisy and Gaia," illustrates the family history and memoir of local comic artist and UC Berkeley art lecturer Gaia WXYZ (pronounced guy-ah wize), and their great-grandmother, Daisy, both of whom moved to San Francisco and the Bay Area nearly a century apart, according to a news release from the arts commission.One year after moving to the Bay Area from Florida, WXYZ learned that their paternal great-grandmother, Daisy Marcella Manning, made a similar move to San Francisco, albeit from Jamaica by way of Costa Rica and Panama, in 1918.

From this shared serendipitous connection, WXYZ created a set of 12 posters in a mix of vibrant color and sepia tones to tell the respective stories of two people, generations apart, who share a dual narrative and love for San Francisco, the release stated."This project was the biggest comic I have ever made, both physically and metaphorically," WXYZ stated.
