Biography

David Koloane was born in Alexandra, Johannesburg,South Africa in 1938 he lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa.
David Koloane’s work addresses socio-political matters and contributions to the furtherance of disadvantaged black South African artists during and after the apartheid era is evident. My work can be said to reflect the socio-political landscape of South Africa both past and present. The socio-political conditions created by the apartheid system of government have to a large extent transfixed the human condition as the axis around which my work evolves. The human figure has become the icon of creative expression.
