‘Koloane’s interpretation of urban life has struggled and triumphed in finding different visions and modes, techniques, materials to express the huge oppressions, upheavals, and hard-won freedoms that have been epitomised in our cities’ sprawl. Urban life has been the epicentral evidence of South Africa’s 20th century and contemporary history. Koloane was born into the human thick of it … He has continued to live and work in different parts and places of the city, creating an urban vision that moves along with its staggering changes, far beyond surface aspects. His art is inward testimony.’ 1
