L.A. Street Artist Revealed to be Porn Star 'Legend'

If you perused around Melrose (the hipster half, east of Fairfax) and other random dots of Hollywood in the last few weeks, you've likely seen an array of stenciled and spray-painted figures and symbols à la Banksy.

These ones are particular femme in nature and sport some cleavage normally seen on...well, a porn star.

But now it all makes sense.

Each scribble signed "DeeKay" is actually by the hand of porn superstar Kylie Ireland, who's been in the business of masochistic pleasure for more than a decade.

Wanna watch her show us her giant pierced nipples with fresh BDSM bruises to match? Don't lie.

But what made her suddenly stretch her wings and dip her toes into a less naked art form?

Kylie writes:

I had a former appreciation for graffiti; something I marveled at as a teenager when I moved to San Diego, away from my quiet small town in Colorado . Years later, as a newbie in the porn biz I remember riding the train from San Diego to Los Angeles often, gazing out the windows, watching the graffiti zoom by, street art I now recognize as some of the top artists and writers in Los Angeles. During the last 10 years I lived in downtown Los Angeles, steps away from the concrete wedge of the Los Angeles river, a hotbed of graffiti and street art.

Hm. Inspiration can come from anywhere I suppose, even when you're knee-deep in...paint?

OK who am I kidding, I'm watching Ireland talk about fucking porn legend Marilyn Chambers.
