If Kim Kardashian's nude selfie didn't make an impression on you, a three-storey mural version of it in Melbourne, Australia should. A graffiti artist by the name of Mark Walls (or @lushsux on Instagram) has turned the controversial photo into a giant mural on the wall of a building on Gwynne Street in the suburb of Cremorne.

Adjacent to this wall is another with Donald Trump's portrait on it, but it is not clear if Mark was also behind that graffiti. Speaking to Mashable, Mark said that the idea came to him the moment he saw Kim's photo on Instagram.

"Maybe I'm as much of an attention seeker as she is?" he said. "[It was] quite hard to turn an archived screenshot from my phone into a [three-storey] nude figure painting."

Maybe you are, Mark, but Gwynne Street might thank you for the influx of tourists you've given it. In fact, he's making a project out of this stunt, calling for his Instagram followers to send him nude photos, which he will paint on walls.

"Think of it as posing nude for a painting but not having to stand in a semi homeless French artist's studio for hours," he wrote.

We wonder what Chloë Grace Moretz thinks of this. After calling Kim out for the nude selfie in a few tweets last week, the actress defended her response in a new interview with ELLE.com.

"All I'll say is that I think a lot of things can be misconstrued in a lot of ways," Chloë explained. "And I think if people open their minds more, and they try to look deeper into something than just something that is a very big, hot, fiery button to hide behind...I think if people looked into something bigger that I was trying to speak upon, they wouldn't be so easy to fire back silly, miscellaneous things."
