We have posted about St. Louis-born artist Edward Kinsella III on the site before, but we just saw that he posted a series of new works that we think are quite good.

Some of these works are on display at Ghostprint Gallery in Richmond, Virginia through Saturday, July 28.

They used geo-tagging and QR codes to make it a full experience. More after the jump . . .
