His artwork plays a major role in his healing practice since, he says, the paintings have the power to heal a range of ailments. According to Oloruntoba, the vegetable dyes used in his paintings are not simply colours, rather they are medicines made from traditional roots and herbs that give the paintings therapeutic powers.
