  Prolific painter and poet, Durrant was born on 4th October 1925 and raised in Lavenham, Suffolk. He began drawing aged 5 and exhibited his first painting in Bury St. Edmunds at the age of 12. From 1948 to 1952 he studied at the Camberwell School of Art, then in it’s post war hey-day.
  Durrant had his first one-man show at the Guildhall, Lavenham in the late 1940's, and continued to exhibit regularly at the Royal Academy, Beaux Arts, Loggia Gallery and Belgrave Gallery, London annually throughout his life, including over 38 one-man shows. He was a fellow of the 'Free Painters & Sculptors Society', and a member of the ‘New English Art Club’.
  He lived in Chelsea during the 1950's, where he met and married, before moving to Cambridge. He continued to develop his early figurative style, abstracting and simplifying, drawing on a strong natural sense of design and draughtsmanship to push the boundaries of his paintings.
  Durrant's work is held in many private and public collections, including The Imperial War Museum, Bradford City Art Gallery and Bailliol College, Oxford. He exhibited widely during his lifetime in many solo and group shows, including the annual Royal Academy exhibition - below is a selection of one-man shows.
