The collection of 12 drawings depicts 12 of the “most evil” people Bronson has encountered during his time behind bars.

Epic Pictures, who sold the collection, have stated that the killer received no profit from the sale.

Infamously violent inmate, Bronson, turned his hand to art in prison in recent years, and has even changed his surname to Salvador after Spanish painter Salvador Dali.

Speaking from prison in June he said: “Art isn’t just art with me: It’s my soul.. my life. Without my art, I’m like a tortoise without its shell.. f***ed!”

His most recent collection of nightmarish drawings are set in prison, where he has been for 43 years.

Each painting features the bloodied thumb print of Bronson which he made as a result of a nosebleed withing his solitary confinement cell at HMP Wakefield.

The drawings make reference to some of Britain’s most well-known and notorious convicts – which he calls his “dirty dozen”.

The drawings make reference to moors murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, along with serial killer Fred West and Milly Dowler’s killer Levi Bellfield.

Notorious gangsters the Kray twins are also mentioned in the nightmarish doodles, as well as killer doctor Harold Shipman and Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe.

Rapist and murderer Malcolm Fairley, Jersey sex beast Edward John Paisnel, murderer Donald “Black Panther” Neilson and Kent serial killer Patrick Mackay make up the rest.

One image shows a winged demon creature holding up a sign that reads:  “I’m not the smartest guy in the world.

“But I know a monster when I see one.  My dirty dozen…”

The frightening pictures also depict flying syringes, spiders and tormented demonic figures screaming behind bars.

His artwork also features several pictures of Bronson himself and appears to suggest he sees himself as a victim.

One caption reads: “British justice … don’t make me laugh!”

Bronson has been behind bars for 43 years, 37 in solitary confinement, after repeatedly having his sentence increased for attacking prison staff and taking them hostage.

Writing in his 2000 book Bronson, he wrote: “I’m a nice guy, but sometimes I lose all my senses and become nasty. That doesn’t make me evil, just confused”.
