Killer art is defined as poetry or artwork created by mass murderers and serial killers while in prison. Often, this process is used as a therapy device, or for further understanding a particularly disturbed psyche, while in other instances it is purely a method of time spanning entertainment for imprisoned individuals. The artists vary dramatically in skill and themes covered.
Then, appears Murderabilia, also known as murderbilia, which is the result of collecting artworks serial killers.
In May 2001, eBay banned the sale of murderabilia items, forcing the industry underground.One of the more prominent dealers of murderabilia who sold on eBay launched their own web site, Supernaught, the first of its kind dedicated to selling true crime collectibles. French criminologist Stephane Bourgouin considers the phenomenon as “unhealthy and intolerable.”
