Gaston de Vel was born in Belgium and is known for his Impressionist landscape and marine paintings. Between 1941 to 1945, he studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels where one of his tutors was Alfred Bastien, a friend of Claude Monet and John Singer Sargent. De Vel lived for many years in the Belgian Congo, a former Belgian colony that is presently the Democratic Republic of the Congo, before moving to New Zealand. He won the Kelliher Art Prize in 1969 and his work can be found in the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in Dunedin, New Zealand.
