A man whose art is set in a house with graffiti, painted graffiti and a “manhole cover” has been found dead in a car crash.
The 32-year-old was found dead at his home on Saturday evening in a field outside Groningen.
His death is being treated as a suicide.
It is not known what caused the crash.
“He was a really amazing artist and was the first one to really do this kind of art,” said Dorte de Ronde, who works with Dutch artists like Loft Marks.
“I am totally insane.
I’m very happy that he was so happy.”
Loft Marks has been in the Netherlands for about 15 years and was a regular at art shows.
He started a graffiti collective called the Black Dot, which started in Amsterdam in 2005.
He also created a series of collages of street art, which he said had become “an obsession” with him.
“It started as a very simple thing, but as I did more of it, I became more and more obsessed with it,” he said.
“Every time I do a piece of graffiti, I am like, I’m just going to start making it bigger and bigger.”
A police spokesman confirmed Loft Marks’ death, saying: “The incident is being investigated as a homicide and a report will be submitted to the police.”
Lift Marks is survived by his wife, two children and three grandchildren.
