Marko Geyko is related with that direction in art which, as A.B.Oliva said, "does not want to deny itself the joy of materiality". His method accumulated the various painting experience of 20th century. The solution for modern society problems, on his thought, is concentration of mind and spirit efforts each of us. In his own case it demonstrates his strained, full of hidden dramatism, compositions.

That's his way - combination of tradition of European postmodernism (West-European painting of post-war period) and national world outlook. Every Geyko's work is a microcosm, which exists by inherent laws of harmony. Articles in his figure compositions are subordinated to laws of artistic harmony, like plastic elements in abstract composition. Adjustment of composition organically joins with powerful emotional fund.
All painting is reflection of world, which are refracted through magic crystal of artistic outlook. Even the most abstract things are connected closely with reality. Colour is materially. Earthly-brown colour, silvery-grey is like colour of wood, which are drying out by sun and wind; warm black colour of black earth. Oil paint leaves on the canvas by its own life, takes part in creation of artistic image.
