Finding out what’s going on in the head of a murderer is a mystery that has inspired dozens of books and movies, as well as psychological research. While the illogical mind patterns of criminals are always bizarre and scientists are still uncertain as to what exactly drives a human into doing inhumane acts that harm others, it’s always satisfactory to get a glimpse of the weird nature of their thoughts. Having that in mind, we’ve collected 12 bizarre and in-a-sense-beautiful drawings and painting made by criminals.

John Wayne Gacy

Nicknamed ‘the Killer Clown’ John Wayne Gacy is responsible for the sexual assault and murder of at least 33 teenage boys in the years between 1972 and 1978. He was executed in 1994.

Charles Bronson

Known as the most violent prisoner in the UK, Charles Bronson committed most of his crimes behind bars. Wounding inmates, attacking prison guards and doing rooftop protests, his mind is an enigma and fascination to dozens. Due to his complex mentality, he is also the subject of a number of books.

Henry Lee Lucas

Convicted of 11 murders and confessing to his involvement in more than 600 murders, Henry Lee Lucas focused on drawing more technical art and peaceful sceneries, which is not something you would expect from such a disturbed mind.
