Geekiyanage completed his university degree at the University of Visual and Performing Arts in 2008. He has had many successful solo exhibitions at Paradise Road Galleries and participated in numerous group shows.
Geekiyanage's early work focused entirely on figurative drawings on canvas of the male torso. The muscular lines of the naked back often in brown and grey hues became the artists signature for a couple of years until he completely abolished his figurative work and began painting abstract linear works on canvas. After one year of working on this series Geekiyanage merged his two distinctive styles and began working on the most powerful of his series of works to-date. These works feature skillfully depicted portraiture, figurative sketches and various features of the human body amidst imagery from Sri Lankan fold tradition, Buddhist mythology and the abstract imagery the artist worked on previously.
