Origin of graphic

From Latin graphicus (“belonging to painting or drawing”), from Ancient Greek γραφικός (graphikos, “belonging to painting or drawing, picturesque, of or for writing; of style, lively”), from γραφή (graphē, “drawing, painting, writing, a writing, description, etc.”), from γράφω (graphō).
