Notorious wild-man inmate Charles Bronson sparked outrage after he launched his own – CLOTHING range.
Vicious Bronson, 58, drew the graffiti-style designs while serving life-sentences for a string of brutal attacks on prison officers.
The t-shirts include chilling messages such as ”fight until you die” and ”psychopath” next to images of Bronson’s shaven head.
But the clothes – which could be sold in the high street – have sparked outrage among victims’ rights groups.
A spokesman for The National Victims’ Association said: ”I would say the overwhelming majority of victims of crime will be astonished and thoroughly depressed that one of the most violent criminals in the prison system is allowed to engage with the British public in this way.”
Bronson sparked outrage earlier this month after another piece of his artwork was displayed on the London Underground.
The controversial hand-drawn work showed a man with three different faces poking out of a straight jacket and was displayed at Angel tube station in North London.
Bronson has been dubbed ‘Britain’s most dangerous criminal’ after first being jailed for robbery in 1974.
On occasions he has taken hostages, staged rooftop protests and has been forced to spend much of his prison life in solitary confinement related because of his appalling behaviour behind bars.
His actions behind bars include wounding with intent, criminal damage, grievous bodily harm, false imprisonment, blackmail and making threats to kill.
He is currently being held as a Category A prisoner at the high security Wakefield jail where he follows a supreme fitness regime which can still see him complete more than 172 press ups in a minute.
The range of 12t-shirts in black, white and red colours and show pictures of fists and silhouetted figures.
They were designed by LA fashionista Joseph Randle and incorporate Bronson’s painting and verses of his poetry.
Bronson teamed with martial arts teacher Dave Taylor to launch the t-shirts and could be sold in high street stores around the country.
Dav, from Warndon Villages, Worcs., said: ”Everybody knows what he’s does and why he’s in prison so people can make up their own minds about the clothes.
”I’ve become very good friends with Charles and I speak on the phone to him all the time.
”People don’t realise he’s a very good artist and poet so we decided to incorporate some of his work into a clothing range.”
Bronson added: ”Dave is now a true loyal friend, a great man I admire and respect. Our connection is brotherhood.”
