Derek Balmer has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the UK and Europe. In 1965 he won the Prix d’Natalie in Provence and following other successes was the 1983 finalist at the Avon Open Exhibition at the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, the city in which he has lived since the 1950s. Derek Balmer was given a solo exhibition in the Sharples Gallery at the RWA in 1980. When asked about the influences on his work Balmer comments: ‘In differing degrees, I am influenced by everything within my visual experience. The problem is one of selection. Artists who I admire (but am not necessarily influenced by) are too numerous to mention but of the ancients, I would choose Greek and Egyptian Art, Near Eastern Art and the Italian Primitives. Velasquez, Rembrandt and Goya are artists I admire from the post Renaissance period and in the twentieth century Vuillard, Picasso and Matisse. I am also fascinated by English Portrait miniatures.’
