Edgar Neyt was a painter and is the author of the book 'Pictorial Serialism'.
He exhibited between ca. 1955 and the early ‘70s with a.o. 'Het Antenneke' and the 'Plus-Kern'. He had individual exhibitions at 'Galerie Van Eyck' and 'Kaleidoscope'. In 1969, he met François Morellet with whom he exhibited at the 'Waumans' gallery in Sint-Niklaas.
Amédée Cortier, who initially gave him technical support, became a friend of the family until his death in 1976.
The art critic Jaak Fontier had work by Edgar Neyt in his collection.
Due to a disinterest in the commercial side of artistic life, he withdrew from the art world in the early ‘70s. However, he remained active until his death.
Edgar Neyt was a self-taught man and had a great sense of languages, mathematics and physics. He wrote his computer programs himself and was well-read in astronomy.
He played the piano and his preference for contemporary atonal music brought him in contact with the composers Emmanuel Van Weerst (1932) and Lucien Goethals (1931). He also showed great interest in the compositions of Pierre Boulez because they are serially structured just like many of his paintings.
