Graphic Arts

The history of graphic arts goes back to the cave paintings of our ancestors. Since this time period, through Ancient Egypt and renaissance, graphic arts have been developed and shaped by men who wished to convey their ideas, in writing. For example the Egyptian hieroglyphs were comprised of a host of graphic symbols.

Today, graphic arts are associated more with commercial art, used in marketing: posters, all kinds of ads, flyers etc. It’s not just confined to the pure mercantile remit and encompasses a varied artistic production, like drawing, typography, painting, photography, not to mention computer graphics.
