He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent from 1888 to 1890. He married Jeannette VAN HOORDE on June 27, 1900. He then left Ghent on June 7, 1901, for Saint Josse, residing at 111 Rue Verte, where he was listed as a "plaster molder."
In 1907, Gustave Van Vaerenbergh was designated as a sculptor. He worked for Carli et Frères on Rue de l'Olivier in Schaerbeek until 1925. He is said to have later had his own workshop in Ixelles.
He primarily created Art Nouveau-style busts but also crafted children, Pierrot, animals, and more in various materials, including marble, bronze, regule, and terracotta.
