Gaston De Mey studied at the art academy in Eeklo. During this period he painted mainly figuratively, but under the influence of the avant-garde art that flourished among others in Antwerp in the late 1950s. In the early 1960s his focus shifted to abstraction.

In 1968 he radically broke with the figurative and only used letters. He dissects words, names and texts into the essential elements that make up them: the letters of the alphabet. These are first lyrically connected through sewing patterns, the orbits of heavenly bodies and views of technological installations such as rockets and machines. Afterwards they are placed in compositions with a geometric abstraction, often using a central mirror line.
