David Koloane

South Africa

David Koloane was born on 5 June 1938 in the township of Alexandra, a suburb of Johannesburg in South Africa. Already during high school, he started being interested in art and doing art in his leisure time when not working to earn money for the family. Through his expressive, evocative and poetic artwork, Koloane interrogated the socio-political and existential human condition, using Johannesburg as his primary subject matter.

David Koloane’s works are part of the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Johannesburg Art Gallery and the South African National Gallery. In addition to his importance as a South African artist, David Koloane is important in the history of South African art as one of the founders of the first gallery in South Africa to feature black artists under apartheid.
