TWA is very impressed with the Windy Press Team. They certainly know their audience and have ART in the forefront, with the latest and greatest of mobile technology at the center of everything they do. Vlad Gerasimov is a poet with his fabulous digital artwork. He claims his style developed itself, "I like to draw things that skip your brain and go straight to your heart."
