David Koloane looks with a lively and perceptive eye at the bustling urban environment that has shaped his works, with a particular focus on the complexities of the South African urban landscape. His work is often recurring and commonly depicts township scenes, dogs, cityscapes and jazz music. His work has been described as “a curious blend of sombre epiphanies and mesmerising celebrations of our collectivity as human beings.” (O’Toole, S., Artbio, July 2003). Koloane collaborated with the David Krut Workshop in 2009 to produce the body of work Wings of Freedom.  Koloane is also the subject of TAXI-006 David Koloane, from the TAXI Art Book series published by David Krut.  In 2014 Koloane was commissioned to produce a work for the group exhibition The Benediction of Shade II in November 2014, Fantasy III.
